Thanks Lev - I have successfully received your first email as a list recipient!


From: bhfa-trustees-bounce@xxxxxxxxxxxxx 
[mailto:bhfa-trustees-bounce@xxxxxxxxxxxxx] On Behalf Of Lev Eakins - 
Secretary, Brighton and Hove Faith in Action

Subject: [bhfa-trustees] Email communication

Dear BHFA trustees,

Although I've been careful not to share email addresses of trustees without 
their permission, section 17 of our constitution empowers trustees to make 
decisions outside of meetings via electronic communication:

"17. Taking of decisions by charity trustees

Any decision may be taken either:

*         at a meeting of the charity trustees; or

*         by resolution in writing or electronic form agreed by all of the 
charity trustees, which may comprise either a single document or several 
documents containing the text of the resolution in like form to each of which 
one or more charity trustees has signified their agreement."

In order to empower trustees to communicate electronically I've created an 
email discussion list 
"bhfa-trustees@xxxxxxxxxxxxx<mailto:bhfa-trustees@xxxxxxxxxxxxx>" and 
subscribed you all to it. This means you can now receive email from other 
trustees without your email address being released without your permission. 
Please note - if you send an email to the list, you will reveal you email 
address to other members.

The members of the email list are as follows:


1.       Rev Martin Poole - St Lukes - Chair of BHFA

2.       David Steell - One Church

3.       Rev Paul Diock - St John the Baptist

4.       Simon Lewis - City Coast Church

5.       Tim Earey - Church of Christ the King

6.       Leighton Rowe - St Peters

7.       Rev Alex Mabbs - Brighthelm Church and Community Centre Trust

8.       Fr Mark Lyon - Benefice of S. Michael & All Angels and S. Paul

9.       Peter Speck, Progressive Synagogue

Associate Trustees

10.   Cllr Christina Summers, Brighton and Hove City Council Faith Groups 

11.   Rev Peter Wells, Lead Chaplain of Brighton and Sussex University 
Hospitals NHS Trust

12.   Lev Eakins - Secretary of BHFA

Please note - by convention I describe all members of the board of trustees 
simply as "trustees". Associate trustees have the same rights and 
responsibilities as full trustees except for voting powers, but they can be 
described as trustees nevertheless.

I've also included the latest Interfaith Contact Group Directory which provides 
contact information for most of the faith groups within the city. You can use 
this to communicate with those faith groups outside the list of trustees.

Please let me know if you have any questions and queries over how this email 
list works.

Please also bear with me if this doesn't work properly to start with - this is 
the first attempt at sending to the list and there may be teething issues!

Kind regards,

Lev Eakins
