Thread Name: Marketing the EFDSS - Job going.
Subject: RE: Marketing the EFDSS - Job going.
On the grounds that the mag, journal, publishing, instrumental / dance tuition, several festivals and folk directory which all used to be produced inhouse when I was on the staff are now outsourced (the website seems to be a Smoothops effort) or have disappeared altogether, yes I did wonder just a bit what current staff (other than the librarians) actually did. A bit like at the BBC, really.
The then Chief Exec in what was unfondly known as The Goode Old Days was quite adamant that he didn't want the staff to have anything like an encyclopedic grasp of what I (for one) thought we were there for. He wanted us to just do typing and let halls to anyone who would pay. Nevertheless, we provided a comprehensive information service to all who phoned and dropped by the library and shop. Ah, the shop. Such a loss . . .
