There’s been a hive of activity at the CSP London office in preparation for the society’s annual representative meeting, held in Manchester on 4 and 5 March.

In an age where we can email one another from the other side of the world and the message arrives seconds later, tweet our deepest thoughts to several thousand people simultaneously, or hold a video conference rather than attend a meeting in the flesh, it’s all too easy to forget the importance of meeting people in person.

The CSP’s strength lies in its members: it needs your input and feedback to ensure the policies and initiatives it follows at national level are the right ones.

The meeting in Manchester is just one of way of doing this.  Many of you won’t be at Manchester.

But you can still keep in touch with the society through i-CSP, CSP’s Twitter feed (@thecsp), letters to Frontline, or through the many channels within the CSP.

Our most recent membership survey showed that Frontline remains your preferred way of hearing about the CSP and physio news.

But the website and ebulletin are growing in popularity.

Nearly 44,000 of you receive the weekly ebulletin and we know a quarter of you open it and click through to read a story.

For those of you who are used to receiving the Physiotherapy journal with Frontline, you may notice that it’s not with this issue.

It has been decided that the time has come to move access to the journal online (see ‘Journal lament’ letter, opposite).

You can, though, read a summary of the latest findings from Physiotherapy editor Michele Harms on page 18.

And we’ll continue to keep you up to date with the latest research in each issue of Frontline, through our Physio findings column.

Our guide on how to use Physiotherapy online was distributed in the 20 February issue of Frontline.
