The task of starting a new Societyis a challenging one but the rewards are great and thanks must go to allthose who have taken up that challenge over the years. The NewSocieties team work untiringly to support each new venture during itsgestation and we look carefully at the feedback we receive to see howwe can improve the service. We are of course always interested to hearfrom members of places where there is no Society but the potentialsupport for one.When Societies join the Association, part of the process is to agree tosupport the charitable aims of NADFAS, summed up in our strap line'arts education and heritage conservation'. For an individual joining anestablished Society it is not always apparent that as well as thelectures, study days and visits - the education part of the remit - theirSociety is also committed to support the conservation of our heritageand to help inspire the next generation with a passion for the arts. Sowhen I'm asked why we seem to put so much emphasis on the work of Church Recorders,Heritage Volunteers and Young Arts, my answer is always the same: they are as much a part ofNADFAS as the more obvious lecture programmes, and have been from its earliest days.The Society News section of every Review always carries reports on these activities and wefeature more in the Volunteering Supplement each summer. However as I travel round the countryvisiting Societies and hear what their members are doing I am acutely aware that these reportsrepresent only the tip of the iceberg. It is difficult to convey the scale and scope of the workNADFAS volunteers are engaged in, the education programmes we support, and the grants weaward. All I can say is that it is inspirational, impressive and I am glad to say increasinglyacknowledged by other organisations. We are approaching the two major events in the NADFAS annual calendar. The Annual DirectoryMeeting takes place in March when your Society representatives have the opportunity to meet andhear our lecturers. The AGM follows in May when we report back on the year and highlight someof the activities Societies are supporting. I look forward to meeting many members on bothoccasions.
