Please contact me using any of the methods listed in the header or right hand column if any of these details are incorrect, and I will be happy to update them.
What this exercise has taught me is that neither the ‘Bios’, nor web presences (where created), nor Symplur profiles of many of the hcsmX community chapters have been properly formed or populated.
As a community, there is work to be done here in order to realise both the value that the individual constituents can deliver, and across the movement as a whole.*
*That’s if we believe hcsm to be a movement at all, which is a moot point.
