VANA quits Futures Project

VANA announced today that it is quitting its Futures Project.  Regulars here will know that I have been a critic of this project from the outset.  It is one of the reasons I resigned from VANA in February.

VANA has an excellent opportunity to refocus on being an association.  Now, more than ever, newsagents need strong representation on policy and supplier issues.

Congratulations to the VANA Board for making this decision.

    Mark- yes you have not been backward in coming forward regarding this project and other VANA decisions. You are not Robinson Caruso however you have much much more to lose than say me, I would hope we can all move on united soon .

    Who cares why they quit this project, I hope VANA can make some big strides for Newsagents and collaborate more and more with other Industry associations and focus on what is affecting Newsagents today and for what is ahead like a bull at a red flag.

    I notice you are quiet on the reincarnated futures project. This new group is set to show that you were wrong about this.

    Davdi, As long as newsagent association funds are not involved they can do what they like.
