Family Day Annual Meeting 15th Nov 2014

Family Day 2014

Thanks to everyone that attended and offered help and ideas.

Thanks especially to our speaker Dr Simon Moodie, and to Dr Sonny Chong and Dr Venkatesh Krishnappa for taking part in the one to one sessions and panel discussions. The Feedback so far has been excellent.

Next Family Day: Sat 21st Nov 2105

Thanks to Eureka! for donating samples of sick bags

These were recommended by members of the US society and we had samples to give away at the meeting.

We welcome Norway to the international CVS Family

Nina Hellebakken Hagen is developing a Norwegian Language CVS website

She is still working on it but it is always great to have a new country and someone else working to promote CVS knowledge.

Newsletter Printing

We need a new supplier to print our newsletters. Can you ask your employer or school/college if they can help? We usually print 200 copies, twice a year, 3200 sheets each time, that is 6.4 standard packs of paper. At consumer prices the paper cost is less than £20 each time.

International CVS Awareness Day - March 5th

Several of the international CVS societies & charities have agreed that we will work together to promote awareness and fundraising and will promote an international awareness day to focus those efforts. Please think what you can do to help. A fundraising activity on or near the day would be fantastic but something as simple as putting up posters (see resources section), or writing or emailing your local paper, could make a big difference and it won't take much time or effort.
