Charitable Company

on Friday, 21st May, 2010

The year seems to have been racing through for FAN. We have become an incorporated charitable company. We were advised to do this as FAN is employing a Development Officer. The new company is called ‘The FAN Charity’. The new company’s main job is to let people know about how a FAN Meeting works.

THE SUCCESS OF FAN MEETINGS SEEMS TO BE PARTLY ABOUT EVERYONE LISTENING QUIETLY WHEN SOMEONE SPEAKS. NO_ONE ELSE SPEAKS OR ANSWERS. THE TIME TO SPEAK IS AFTER THE MEETING IF IT IS NOT YOUR TURN. THIS IS VERY VERY IMPORTANT.

Don’t even answer question. Someone can just say – we can talk about that afterwards.
