Hi <<First Name>>
Welcome to our latest newsletter. As you'll know if you got our last newsletter we're a growing organisation. We've been undergoing big changes since the beginning of the year when we got grants that enabled us to expand our work and become an employer for the first time. While we were still adjusting to this we achieved another milestone, moving into our own offices.
In future newsletters we will have some more introductions from staff members volunteers and participants (although this plural makes us sound quite big, we're still tiny, all the staff and volunteers are part-time, still not making up even one full time equivalent)
Nikki and Caroline have been employed since January, co-coordinating the work and facilitating groups, ably assisted by Juliet on occasion, and I've just joined the staff having been on the team for some time, and will be keeping track of our finances and working on this newsletter.
So I'll start by introducing myself, Laura Williams, as besides being one of the original directors of AutAngel, I am our newest staff member, and the Cat Lady in our book 'Being Autistic.'
I have enjoyed meeting some AutAngel group members, and I hope to meet more of you in the future. I will be working mostly from my home in Haslemere.
