Dear wonderful members of Group 2012, I really appreciate all your loyalty and support this year. We have tried to bring great speakers to you whenever we can. However, this year we have struggled to meet all of the cost as members have moved away or not been able to attend for various reasons. Would everyone be comfortable with membership going up to £25 next year? The guest payments would also rise to £5.
Recruiting more members would help us provide better events in the future, so please do tell all your writer friends.
