AGM 2021

Thanks to all who attended an excellent AGM on the 11th May. The Kent Hotel once again were great hosts, and it was wonderful to see everybody face-to-face again.

Special thanks to Associate Professor David Anderson for his wonderful talk, and our congratulations go to Dr Andrew Buchanan who was elected to Life Membership of the society for his continued commitment to the field.

Sadly, we said goodbye to Ms Anna Wood as a member of the committee, upon which she has served as secretary for many years: we thank her once again for her highly-valued contribution. In further changes to the committee, we welcome Dr Jacqueline Coombe and Mr Michael Traeger as general members, and look forward to working with them. You can find out more about the new committee here.
