Feb JBAA

Has the February JBAA been mailed to members of the association who have requested a paper copy?

I ask. Because I haven't got mine yet.

Thank you.

I don't have mine yet either but the post in Chelmsford is badly affected by Covid and, possibly the inch of snow that fell on Monday.

Thanks for the replies. 

I had to ask the office to send out my last two JBAA as I never received them. Hopefully this time. I will.

Interesting that you failed

Interesting that you failed to receive two consecutive issues, the same thing happened to me with the August and October journals. The December one arrived OK but a bit late. As it has happened to both of us perhaps there is an underlying issue as opposed to just bad luck

Special word for the Office who were super efficient in getting out replacements despite working from home. I seem to recall they confirmed my name and address were definitely on the lists sent to the printers.

David.

Journal Deliveries

I've been in contact with the BAA Office and they have confirmed there has been a bit of a delay to the Journal this month. They should be arriving with people any day now, noting the BAA Office haven't yet received their box of copies, to their home addresses as they are of course working from home at present.

Paul & David, I was sorry to hear you had problems with your Journal deliveries. I've done a little investigation with the BAA Office to check there is no ongoing problem.

David's appeared to be some kind of delivery problem. He's had no changes to his address and his address was in the list sent to the printers in August.

There was a minor problem with Paul's address that we didn't spot. Basically an issue around the country not matching a known Royal Mail Zone causing it to fail. We discovered this after the December Journal print run and have implemented some changes to avoid this problem in future. The Office are now able to produce a list of any problem addresses before doing the Journal run, so they can fix them prior to generating the mailing list to the Journal printers. It only affected a handful of members, I think less than 6, who were sent their Journals separately by the Office. We should have spotted and fixed this sooner, so our apologies.

Best wishes

Andy (with my BAA Systems Administrator hat on)

My copy arrived this morning. I live in SE Essex.  The last few issues have arrived around the middle of the month.

Thank you Andy for checking this for me. And a big thank you to the staff in the office who are working hard to keep the ball rolling despite the current climate.
