For those involved in or with family business
I have just sent this message to all members:
I have always believed that this concept could have a great future. Claire Seaman who has also been very active in trying to get it going has the same belief.
This Ning site which was to be the basis of UKFBA with other activity developing from it is currently too inactive.
There is very little interchange on the site, which is due mostly I think to having too few members and too little visibility.
What it needs I think is a new start on LinkedIn which has great visibility, maybe continuing this site as a resource.
This needs someone with the time and motivation to organise it all and it also needs someone or some people to pay the annual fees for this site of £169 which Lorna Collins originally paid and I have recently paid. These will shortly be up for renewal.
Regrettably I do not have the time to try to make it work and really do not want to pay alone.
I have tried to find someone else to run it and have spoken to a number of people but in no case has this been successful.
Is there someone else or some organisation who would be prepared to take it over?
Is there someone or some organisation who would be prepared to take over the fees?
Let's start a dialogue going on the site to try to solve this problem but if we do not get a solution quite soon then I will close the site before the annual renewal date.
Many thanks indeed for all your interest in the past and I sincerely hope that a solution will materialise with your help.
