Anyone know how those things work :?:


NO but we can ask someone who does :idea:

Helloooooooooo Dick! Helooooooo


:lol: lol... Dick just PM'ed me with some useful pointers and he also said he'd be happy to address a meeting of interested parties if we thought it would help. But he also thinks that it might be better for ourselves if our members did it without any further public input from himself.

Agreed.

And 'courage' doesn't come into it. Put me on Q102 any day of the week! (I just hope my mum isn't listening)

I would be happy to pay a subscription if it had a clearly defined set of goals and plans.

This is a great idea. The Humanist Association may currently be the closest fit, but it is a long way from representing my views!

However, I wonder what it will take for an association such as ours to get a seat at the table? Perhaps we need to include belief in invisible teapots or something similar in our memo and arts of association to be treated as a worthy peer of the religious.
