Scottish Subscription Magazine
During the workshop on Saturday the future of the hard copy Zest newsletter/magazine will be discussed. This was also covered at a CoCo Cafe AGM table.
An important issue is whether a subscription-based stand-alone newsletter could be viable, and if it is not, how its continuation could be guaranteed financially should CCIS agree to dissolve itself as a Constitutional body.
One possibility would be to use some of the residual CCIS funds, if this was agreed during any planned wind-down of CCIS. Another possibility might be to get support from the Coco Foundation.
Workshop about Networking
The Sunday workshop is set-up to explore the routes open to establish effective networking among co-counsellors in Scotland, With this we mean finding ways to support co-counsellors to find meaningful and relevant connections among themselves. By doing so, we hope to increase a wider community awareness.
Holding both workshops over a single weekend should promote integrated discussion. It will also allow people who need to travel to the workshops to make one trip rather than two.
