March 2013: New Committee and Dating (not at the same time exactly)

26 Mar

So our march 2013 meeting is also our 2nd birthday – two years old this month! Hooray!

But that also means we had to have an AGM – Boo!

But because we didnt want to bore the whole group, we quickly dealt with AGM business in a record breaking 14 minutes. Throughout 2012 we conducted a survey of our members, including our online members, and asked them what they liked and didn’t like, and what they’d like to see more of from FTMB. So we presented the results as part of the AGM.

Finally we went through the election process, keeping our current committee and adding four new members so we now have a grand total of seven – a much more stable number. Really good to have some new voices in the committee. And with a stronger committee, FTM Brighton can continue to thrive.

With the AGM over with we got on with the main business of the day – relationships and dating. Its a topic that is frequently brought up in the group – how to chat people up, how to negotiate dating when you’re uncomfortable with your body and importantly – when and how to tell someone you’re trans.

We had a great discussion and generated a lot of questions and a lot of answers. This is no doubt going to be a topic we return to again!
