2023 Yearbook – VERY IMPORTANT UPDATE

2023 Yearbook – VERY IMPORTANT UPDATE

***** BREAKING NEWS *****

26th July 2023 Hard Copy Yearbook has been distributed. Should be with members by 31st July, assuming postal services are on time.

Digital Flipbook version produced, developers  checking out the technical stuff again should replace the PDF placeholder by 31st July. 

The 2023 Annual is currently being proof read to make sure that editorial content has any glaring errors corrected. 

It is anticipated that this process will be completed quickly enabling the Annual to go to print and be distributed by the end of July latest. 

Agreed this is a month behind last year schedule for previously reported problems, but it is to be hoped that members will agree that the second edition lives up to its previous quality appearance and content.

The increased content had meant that the members directory has had to be removed from the 68 page Annual and will be included as a separate insert. 

 

2022 Year book was distributed week commencing 13th June 2022, with future publication & distribution reported as being targeted for June of each year.

The year book team hoped that they could improve on this date for 2023 but this has not been possible for a variety of reasons; increased material from members and affiliates, personnel health problems, work commitments etc which has  made that timeframe unworkable.

All current paid members, unless they have indicated that they wish to access a website soft copy will receive a hard copy sent to the last known / advised address.  

Distribution will be made via an outside mail house who were able to hit 97.5% delivery in 2022.

We understand that members look forward to the new A4 full colour annual and apologise in advance for this delay. 

Remember: Although this will be the second publication there may still be things missing that members consider important. If that is the case Please let us know, mail to admin@igba.co.uk or write to the General Secretary, address in the Yearbook, so we can address your observations. 

From 2022 onward the  “year book” became a single A4 full colour annual publication,  

The YB Team continue to make a request of all Affiliate / Individuals – Please get your articles, show reports, pictures, following year show adverts with full identification of date, venue, judges etc submitted to admin@igba.co.uk for inclusion in the book as soon as possible after the turn of the year and certainly before 31st March each year. Delay adds to the YB team missing publication dates as the content format  needs to be changed to accommodate late articles.

Don’t wait until the last minute to submit editorial we start compiling next years edition late December early January each year. The drop dead date for submitting items to be included in a Yearbook will be the 31st March.   

The book is / will be available in PDF Digital format to all members . This gives  24/7/365 access without having to carry around paper. 

We have moved member communication from 2 books to 1 yearbook and periodic bulletins. if you haven’t had the period bulletins it can be because we don’t have your email address. Help us correct this by emailing admin@igba.co.uk your email address and you will start getting the bulletins.

Remember only current paid members will receive YB and other communications, if you are unsure of your current status contact Steve Webb Membership Secretary on +44(0)1386 438072 or email Steve Webb stevewebb44@hotmail.com
