News from the AGM – Members elect a new Chair of Trustees

At the Society’s AGM on Sunday 16th May, Beth Rogers was elected unanimously as the new Chair of the Society, and Peter Osborne, already a co-opted member of the Executive Team, was elected as a full trustee. The existing trustees were confirmed in their posts; Anthea Coles as Honorary Secretary, Phil Broomfield as Membership Secretary and Sam Hearn as Treasurer. Roy Bailey, who stood down as Chair, remains an ex-officio member of the Executive Team and the editor of the newsletter.

The AGM was conducted as a virtual meeting. It is hoped that the 2022 AGM will be a full meeting that members can attend in person or if they so wish via a virtual link. We have several overseas members, particularly in North America, who have appreciated the opportunity to attend Society meetings via Zoom.
