This year saw some quite innovative changes to the way the Society communicates. Since its inception minutes of the AGM (held this year at Widnes between 28th-31st March) have always been published in the June Contact, which in turn has made philatelic material in the issue somewhat limited.
We have had the facilities in place to distribute mailings electronically, used primarily for the distribution of auction catalogues, it was decided to distribute the minutes of the AGM in this manner too, thereby freeing up page space in the magazine for more relevant matters. Anyone without email will have received the minutes in hard copy in a separate mailing
On the subject of the magazine, it is worth noting that the quality of Contact in PDF format is so good now, that even though it is prepared in A5 size it will print clearly in A4 IN FULL COLOUR by changing the users printer settings. Tests carried out have shown that should anyone wish to print off an issue of Contact in A3 (i.e. 4 times its original size) it will still not affect image quality or clarity!
