This page provides all the principal communications sent out to Local Organisers so far this year. By providing them in one place, we can all know where to go to find previous communications that might have been misplaced either in our email systems or paper systems for those who receive communications by post instead. Importantly, this also allows new Local Organisers to get up to date from a cold start and the summary notes will allow all of us to find something we know was mentioned in a previous communication somewhere. The latest communications are shown at the top of the list.
