Highlights of 2010... coming up in 2011

It may be a while since you first signed up to the FairSay newsletter (on [date], via [source]). I'm afraid this is the first newsletter I've sent, so you could be forgiven for having forgotten all about it! Apologies.

From now on, the FairSay newsletter will aim to help keep you up to date with e-campaigning, linking you into current trends, discussions and activities happening in the FairSay and wider e-campaigning communities.

If you have feedback, or ideas of things you want to hear more about, let me know simply by replying to this email. And you can of course stop the emails at any time, using the 'unsubscribe' link below.
