Network Updates

Hi all,

Our second Network meeting for the year will be taking place on Thursday 3rd June at 2pm on Zoom. If you do not have a calendar invite already, you can download one using the button below. Also a reminder to all those who usually give updates at the meeting to please send your Network updates to this week to make it easier on us for minutes.

But first, just a heads up that QFVSN is changing the way our membership works so that it's a bit less confusing for everyone! Some of our members really only want to receive newsletters, while others want to attend meetings as well as receive newsletters. From now on there will be two types of memberships for QFVSN: Newsletter membership and Full membership.
  • Newsletter membership entitles the member to receive the regular newsletters.
  • Full membership entitles the member to newsletter access as well as the ability to participate in meetings and working groups, and to vote in meetings. Full members also get meeting calendar invites emailed out to them ahead of time.
How to sign up: Everyone who receives our newsletters are already Newsletter members. If you would like to register as a Full member, click the button below to fill out our Full Membership Registry with your details. 

Both membership options are free of charge and are open to all current and future Network members equally to opt-in and out of at will. For more details, please see the updated QFVSN Terms of Reference.

Warm regards,
