The Society continues to face cost pressures, and the need to contain our management costs within the budget has meant that a revised management structure has been introduced. Fortunately, the new IT system which is due to be commissioned on 1st October will help us provide the same level of service with fewer staff. As a result, the staff numbers at HQ have been reduced by 2 posts. Leonie Morton (who worked in the Commercial Department) left us last month to take up another job and her post will not be filled. At the same time, the opportunity to reorganise the way services are provided by the Amateur Radio Department has been taken and, regrettably, Carlos Eavis G0AKI was selected for redundancy as a result. Carlos had worked for the Society for 12 years and we wish him well for the future.
Please note that the full range of services provided by the Society continues and, in particular, enquiries can continue to be made to the amateur radio department telephone/email address at HQ as usual.
