Our hard-working event organisers ask a favour of members: where an RSVP is requested, do please respond by the deadline date. Otherwise organisers get caught in a no-person's-land where bookings remain rubbery, restaurants are inconvenienced, and all that. So when you see an RSVP, please respond promptly and make the planet and universe a more gentle and orderly place :)
PS We don't know where to put this item, but we've had expert technical help this issue from our new CIO (Chief Information Officer) and committee-man Greg Jeffrey. Fingers crossed that he's not poached away from us by a better salary offer :)
