I heard from a friend that the ASE is making most of its field officers redundant. Does this mean that the ASE is to become even more of a talking shop with very little action? At the moment I get a journal that I don't read, a magazine with the odd good idea in and access to about three courses a year at a special price. My membership is due in a few months and I'm seriously considering what I get in return and if it's work renewing. How do others feel about the ASE?
