I think I have said quite enough generally, but I will just add that I don't
think anyone anticipates and certainly does not want the demise of the SRG,
which is not so fragile that it relies on we amazing business archivists to
sustain it. As I said previously, I suspect that many people would want to
belong to both groups in any case. Unless it is called BAG, in which case
I'm off.
Also, I think we are getting a little beyond ourselves in floating the
restructuring of the Society. We are only talking about setting up a new
group, which is really only a natural evolutionary process reflecting a
perceived need.
