Disappointed in The Beacon's name change

    Hey, come on BCNA, do you really want the minority of men to sit down and read their copy of Pink Lady?
    Maybe you could also have one Newsletter for the men and call it Blue Gentleman!
    I am pleased that us women here have let our feelings be known regarding this name change, and men here, no you are not complaining, it is a slight to you personally.  
    Men and women are affected by this disease, let the Newsletter reflect that, please! Or just keep it at the same name.

    Why are the BCNA taking so long to respond to this issue?im actually really surprised to be honest. And I still can’t see any response as to why they have to change it??  And why at the very least hasn’t Christine Nixon responded to the letter sent to her by @traveltext ? That’s a bit of a shame. Why can’t we start  a post on suggestions for a name and logo change then? That seems fair doesn’t it ? Margie. Xx

    @Chester80$$ Corporate theming!  How about they think of the members, and be inclusive. I wonder how many men actually work at BCNA?  Very disappointing!

    It seems a shame the change.when the online network was changed bcna really listened to us and made changes to accomadate and realy kept us informed.this seems different l hope the woman and men who make up the bcna are not being forgotten. Even the friday update seems not the same. I hope bcna is not loosing its roots.

    Just  wanted to say I believe that it is christine Nolan who is the ceo not christine Nixon, can someone correct me?

    Christine Nolan is correct.

    Great ideas @Zoffiel. I’d like to see the pink lady dressed up like that. :)

    Has BCNA become so big that they are unable to respond to the needs of the very people they advocate for and provide an online platform for? I have cancelled my Pink Lady/ the Beacon newsletter in protest.

    @Zoffiel, love the way you think. We may not want the rebranding of the Beacon, but we do need to be able to offer constructive alternatives. Your suggestion goes a long way ☺

    Oh that's a shame!  
    It's presently skeleton staff in a lot of organisations so perhaps that’s the case for BCNA.  
    Giovanna has passed our concerns on.
    I have sent an email on the feedback email for the Beacon. Hopefully others have also!
    Maybe this strategy hiccup needs to go to the Board and goodness knows when they meet.....
    As @Zoffiel commented earlier this should be causing consternation.

    @Zoffiel Totally agree with your post. Smart idea...love the blue addition. I had the image of a pink lady holding hands with a blue man. Just my thoughts.
