Apologies for just catching this, but thank you for the suggestion. First, please feel free to call me Scott. Even my father doesn't go by Mr. English.
I have noticed there is not a Society section here on the SCF, so I've tried to be creative with where I post.
"What are the chances that APS would actually post news and business items to the proposed forum? Have they (Mr. English) express any interest?"
I have increasingly tried to include the online forums in what is happening. One of our stated goals is better outreach through social media and other methods to members and non-members alike. It will be a slow build, but ultimately, it will be worth it.
A quick plug for the strategic plan, please feel free to read, review and share any questions or comments: http://stamps.org/userfiles/file/re...Plan2016.pdf
"Certainly could put the on going officer election stuff there...."
I know you saw the thread - and commented - but so anyone catching this one will see, I did post an update on the elections as of last week, here: http://goscf.com/t/48695
As for hosting our own forum, it seems like the Stamp Community has an online presence well in hand, and being able to speak your mind (positive and critical of the APS) would be much easier to accomplish on a neutral site. Of course, I hope it's all positive!
