I agree that this site is a good place to host a forum but we also need to be aware that it is very much a public domain. My experience of running an owners club for a few years as a local area representative is that there are occasions when the information that you wish to exchange may not be suitable to release to a public domain. For example, we recently organised a meeting where a member had volunteered to host a BBQ at his house. Members needed to be provided with his address and contact details.
I think there is also some benefit in having our own website which simply provides information. E.g. who we are, what we do and how to get in touch.
In summary, I feel that we could use several types of media. A private e-mail network, the public forum on this site and our own information web site for prospective members.
Whilst this site is excellent, it can become cluttered and difficult to find the particular information you need. It is also beyond our control as to what is published.
Thanks for your input which is much appreciated.
