Hi Everyone

Yesterday, at the trustee meeting, the current trustees accepted my request to join them. This is a positive step forward, for So Make It, as the quantity of work the trustees do to keep the space running can be shared further. 

I've been a member since 2011 and have seen the space change a lot in that time. I had always been reluctant to be a trustee, but I recently decided that now is the right time. There have been ups and downs over the past 10 years, but genuinely it's an organisation that I believe in and want to succeed. The current COVID situation has been a set back, however it's also an opportunity to pause, assess what's working and what's not, and use the future re-opening as a springboard to grow the membership, as well as making the space more active and engaging.

I want to help to lead that process, but the trustees can't do it without your help! So as we get closer to being able to re-open, keep a look out for requests for your involvement, and please get involved where you can.

See you all later this year!

Ben
