       “The Importance of Succession Planning

It is not a phenomenon unique to transport enthusiast societies that most of the volunteers who do the various jobs running Buses Worldwide (the society) and the heroic work in producing our 3 high quality magazines BBA, BWW and MTN are getting older.  Younger people do not appear to join societies in the same numbers as before and this does lead to problems with succession when one incumbent or other has to give up their duties for whatever reason.  BWW has appealed before for members to come forward to fill various posts and has had some success but is still looking for more people to put themselves forward to take on jobs or assist current incumbents with the idea of learning what has to be done to ensure continuity if that incumbent needs to give up due to age, incapacity, death or some change in their circumstances. We need people to learn these jobs and if we do not find them, we may not be able to continue to produce the magazines which members tell us that they value highly.  As an example, we have had difficulties regarding the production of BWW.  These are not yet fully resolved beyond the end of 2018, though we hope we might have a solution.  At present production of the features half and the news half of the magazine are carried out by two people, Richard Stedall and David Stevenson.

What we need are assistants to news, features and production editors and publicity officer.  There are presently 2 unfilled places on the Management Committee, which we would like to fill at the coming AGM on 19th May and would welcome nominations.  Anyone putting themselves forward might consider if they might want to do any of these jobs or any other post on the committee for that matter.  We would like to fill other jobs, which we would like to do if we had volunteers, as part of the committee or not.  If you feel you might like to help, I urge you to do so please and to help maintain the society and our 3 magazines at the present high level or even better than they are now.  Location anywhere in the world is no problem as email and skype can easily keep us in touch.  Please don’t wait for others to come forward but volunteer yourself if you have the time and inclination to do so.  Get in touch with me at secretary@busesworldwide.org or any of the other officers listed in the magazines in you can help us to keep things running smoothly.  Thank you.

Simon Brown

Secretary, Buses Worldwide.”
