Old Folk's Home We discussed getting the OFH Updates back on track. We are planning to have them fortnightly, so make sure that you let your RSA know of anything we can add! We have also had quite a fierce debate on what to do with chapters not having 3 meets a year. In the past, chapters were moved to "inactive". However, we don't think that that is in the best interests for the future of the chapter if someone wants to get it started again. We'd like to encourage online discussions and chats, as well as meet-ups. So in the future, if a chapter doesn't meet-up, then the CR will be demoted, but the chapter will stay open. Leading on from that, we are now discussing in more detail what the role of a CR should be.
