    The Julian Meetings and Data Protection

    The EU General Data Protection Regulation (EUGDPR)came into force on 25th May this year.  You may have noticed that you are being contacted about this by many organisations you have connections with.  There are many websites with information about this, here is one:

    https://www.eugdpr.org/key-changes.html

    To reflect the new standards established by this we've updated our Privacy Policy and Terms and Conditions.  We have not had to make any significant changes as our processes were already compliant with the proposed legislation.  We have added some information about how we store your personal data and how it is shared.  You can find our Privacy Policy and Terms and Conditions prominently displayed on our website.  If you would like a paper copy please email it@thejulianmeetings.net  Your August newsletter will also contain a postal address if you prefer us to send you a paper copy.  

    The Regulation expands your existing set of rights regarding your personal data. These include the ability to withdraw your consent, the right to correction, and the right to be forgotten.

    You can, for example, use your privacy settings to opt out of our general information emails, (but not system emails regarding your account operations), and to determine what information you share with other members or the general public.  Our default is always complete privacy except for meeting information in our meeting directory where public display is part of our Terms and Conditions for a meeting.

    We will not share your information with third parties.  The exception to this is that we will continue to share the names, email addresses, and phone numbers of those of you who are the first contact for meetings, We shall only give them to people who wish to contact the meeting (we shall not display them on public website).  However, this information will not be shared with individuals or organisations who simply wish to advertise their own events.  Meeting second contacts will be contacted by us before we share their information.  This is because we do not at present have direct permission to share their contact details as these are supplied by the first contact.

    We feel that our systems and procedures are as robust as we can make them at the present time, but welcome any comments and suggestions.

    We need a Minutes Secretary for our Core Group and National Council Meetings.  Can you help?

    The Minutes Secretary is a very important and interesting role in JM.  Please do contact our Convenor, Sheana Barby if you have any questions or would like to discuss the post.  You can email via the Contacts page here or log in and you can find other contact details on the General Forum.

    Minutes Secretary

    Role Description

    Produce the minutes for the Core Group and National Council meetings.  Core Group meets 3 times a year, February, June, October.  National Council meets once a year in October followed by the Core Group meeting.  The meetings are mid-week and involve an overnight stay, two nights in October.  At present we meet in Derby and Shallowford near Stafford.  All venues are accessible by train.  Expenses are paid.  The Secretary is a member of both meetings and is welcome to contribute to the discussions.

    Use of email and word processing software is necessary.  Most major word processing software is acceptable.

    The Secretary may also be a signatory to our bank account and therefore two character references will be required.

     Details of the task

    1 Take the minutes during the Core and Council meeting.  A verbatim record is not required but the minutes should include:

    • a)      A summary of the discussions.
    • b)      Details of any decisions made and any actions to be taken.

    2 Send draft minutes to the Convenor as soon as possible for checking, ideally within 3 weeks of the meeting.

    3 Amend minutes as necessary and return to the Convenor for distribution.

    Please apply to Sheana Barby

    Monastic Wisdom on meaning and apocalyptic light. Brother Richard Hendrick reveals how waiting for a DART in a sleet shower caused a spontaneous ripple of laughter and communal epiphany. 'We are all radios intended to pick up meaning -- tune yourself into epiphany' Brother Hendrick explores how we can find meaning in the cacophonous chaos and distractions of the ephemeral world. He encouraged us to experience outer silence, choose meaning and enjoy at least one apocalypse a day. This was recorded at Trailblaze as part of Cork Midsummer Festival 2012

    Here we will put news about Julian Meetings and other items of interest.  If you would like to contribute an article please contact the IT Co-ordinator.

    Circumstances have meant we have had to change our website host but the new host has lots of good features.  So we are experimenting, in particular with those that allow our members to become more involved.  If they wish.
