I hope to read the writings of Socrates. And my 1100 page History of Icelandic Railways. After that, my 2016-17 Yearbook of the Swiss Navy. Then I'll consider and cogitate upon the prompt thought-provoking responses from above to my pleas in two posts on this Forum - "Who gains? Who loses?" and "Wellbeing of staff under Probation" - before I decide whether to renew my Napo subscription this time next year. I've just renewed. It was a very marginal decision. An end of term report on Napo might say," Can do better. Should do better". I've been a member for about 35 years and a Branch Officer and Individual Rep for many of them. I've given far more than I've received but this aloof failure to engage and respond by Napo is indefensible. Another member organisation, CAMRA, is reinvigorating its Forum from its having been a "trusty workhorse" into a CAMRA Discourse fit for the modern IT age. Far from being negatively critical, I've made positive suggestions but seem to be attempting an audience with the deaf (no slight intended to the deaf). So, unless things change and someone realises that Napo serves its members, not the other way about, then I'll be leaving towards the end of 2017.
As usual, I welcome comments positive or negative from readers. Feel free to tell me if I've got this all wrong. Or if I'm missing something. Or maybe I do have a point?
