And from what I hear on the grapevine about declining membership (I mean REAL members, the ones who pay the bills, not the loss-leader affiliate so-called members), it seems that when people have to go those other places, they really go!
Please don't upset yourself Chris - if this situation had been decided democratically, you'd still be with us. A lot of us do care, and I think that the membership is going to miss you and regret what's happened more and more as time goes by...........but no-one is going to listen to us.
I hope that all's well with you Chris. We remember your name - but I can't remember the name of either the chairman of council, or the chief exec. The following was said above, and I endorse it :
".......far more significant is that the organisation had a capable, knowledgeable employee who knew the industry and cycling community and was highly respected by the industry and cycling community. If an organisation cannot make effective use of such a person where his skills are highly relevant to the organisation's work then it is a complete management failure.......".
The word inept also springs to mind. An unbiased, skilled, experienced and knowledgeable 'Technical Officer' was part of my reason for continuing my membership for nearly 40 years and if others have continued their membership for similar reasons then I submit that the 'Technical Officer' will have generated more revenue than money saved made by dispensing with his services.
Ride on Chris - I hope it never rains on your rides.
