In our 2014 Strategic Review we reaffirmed our commitment to keep members at our heart and so streamlined our AGM to a morning-only session with no overseas staff or producers present. The cost saving has allowed us to hold a series of five member events across the UK, reaching a greater proportion of our membership.
Brand new resources have been created in line with volunteer feedback, including a Volunteer Handbook and a more compact Enquiry Pack to use at events when people require a brief introduction to Shared Interest. We also launched a Children’s Yearly Report to engage our younger investors and hopefully improve retention levels once the young person reaches 16 years and takes over the Share Account.
