About publishing event details

The deadline for announcements is about the 20th of each month but, if you are planning an event, you should try to write giving details of it to the Regional Meetings Co-ordinator by the 15th of the month to give them time to check all the details, get back to you with any queries, and then complete the file document which they have to send to the British Mensa office by their deadline. In the office, somebody will again double check that all the details of every event are provided, for every region in the British Isles, again getting back to the Regional Co-ordinators with any queries.

All this takes time; and in the office they then collate the files for all the regions and forward them to the Editor of British Mensa magazine to put in the What’s On pages of the month after next (remember, the August Magazine is prepared in June, and so on). The Magazine Editor has to ensure that those pages are correctly placed, along with all the other magazine content for the month, and then get the magazine off to the printers.

In the same way, the office has to send all the regional newsletters off to those printers, at the end of each month, to be printed and then assembled and mailed out in time to all members in every region. The logistics demand this lead time when preparing event details.

Details of events go from the Regional Meetings Co-ordinator to the Regional News Letter Editor (RNLE) who puts them in page 6 of SEMantics for the relevant month, and when that happens the applicable details are also copied to the relevant month’s block for this page. They are enabled in due course.
