FMA UK Trustees March 2010 Newsletter

Other News


FMA UK will have a publicity stand at the BSR conference from 21st to 23rd April at the ICC in Birmingham.

Preparations for Jeanne’s Hambleton’s South East conference (Pamper Weekend) on the weekend of 23rd April are going well.


The severe weather in January meant that Chloe was unable to get into the office, which had lead to a backlog of orders and responses to enquiries.

We have engaged the services of a company to manage our bookkeeping and they will be visiting the office on a regular basis.

International Awareness Day

Because the general election will probably take place around the same time as the International Awareness Day, Rob Wilson MP suggested 29th June as an alternative date. A room has been booked for the coffee morning at Westminster on that date.

Group Leaders’ Meeting

A Group Leaders’ meeting is to be held in Stourbridge on 29th October providing there is sufficient support from groups. Information on the venue and accommodation can be found here: http://bit.ly/glm2010 and the booking form can be found here: http://bit.ly/glmform

Online Shop

The way that FMA UK offers products through the website has had a dramatic change and now allows users to track their previous and current orders and request information about products from the shop. There are a number of new features that come with the new shop but this update will allow the office to manage orders more efficiently and communicate easier with customers about their order.

Upcoming features will be the ability for groups to order online at their discounted prices and receive a purchase order form from which to pay by cheque. We will also be able to carry a larger range of products in the future and manage these better.

Email Newsletter, Twitter and Facebook

We have added a monthly email newsletter to the website that is sent to all forum users. This provides another conduit for getting information out to people. It primarily communicates what’s coming up in the next issue of the magazine, what’s been happening on the website and news of upcoming events. If you would like to receive your copy of the email newsletter please register on the forum and you will receive the next issue when it is sent out. Past issues are available online.

Social Networking sites are a growing area for charities and causes. We have created a presence on Twitter recently and are expanding our use of Facebook. These new ventures allow us to communicate easily and quickly with people and complement our website. Please check our website for more information.

New Contact Details

For some time the association has used the fmauk.org domain on our website and literature for our email addresses. We have started to use the @fmauk.org email addresses by default on any new project.

At some point in the future we will discontinue our older Hotmail and AOL addresses so it would be a good idea to update your address books to have the new entries. Below is a list of some of the addresses that you may have to use when contacting FMA UK.
