Changes, changes

I’m at the basement club this morning. I am not very happy. I found out that at the members meeting this week they have decided well staff did, that the name of the basement club should be changed to cork shine. Shine is the organisations name but we’ve always been known as the basement club, the reason the centre was called the basement club at the beginning of its creation was because it was in the basement of a building. But anyway. Members were not asked if they wanted the name changed. It was the decision of head office in dublin. I think thats awful. WE should be asked, and it should be voted on, like all of our decisions are voted on by members.. I am not sure it will be though. Thats sad to me. Sad how many changes there are going on here right now. The new coordinator has started. I met her this morning. She seems to be nice. She did say that over the next couple of weeks she is going to try to sit down with everyone individually and get to know us. I do think that is good. I would like to do that. And if she offers me a slot I will take it. I will be staying here for a few hours. Its 10:30 now and I am going to be here until at least 2 as I am hosting lunch today with my friend denise. Right now staff are in a meeting. There seems to be a ton of staff meetings, something that never happened much in the past. So yeah. A few members are here, but the weather is bad so I dont think that many will come in today.

  1. hmmmm change is never easy, I wonder whether they want to change the name to make it easier for people who might benefit from being in the club to join…..whatever the reason they should have consulted you really (but they’re an organisation and higher ups will always have the last say).
    I hope you manage to have a chat with the new manager, sounds like you have a lot of questions for her! xox
