The SHCS’s Executive Committee underwent its usual annual nomination and election process at the AGM in October, as laid down in our Constitution.
The only position not filled this time was the role of Chairman, but the position of Vice Chairman was taken by Louise Drewery who has been on the Committee for several years and, as well as running the Society website, also helps out with the Young Nats.
After 12 years as Chairman, Peter now returns as a Committee member.
Pauline Bursell remains as Treasurer and Freddy Kennedy remains as General Secretary – both of whom do a fantastic job.
We had to say a sad goodbye to two long standing members who retired as valued Committee Members, Anne and Reg Fisher.
Anne was also our Programme Secretary and organised many fantastic speakers. We wish them both well in their retirement from the Committee and look forward to seeing them at our open meetings.
At the AGM, we welcomed a new face on to the Committee, Clive Dennison. Clive has done a lot of work on our reserves for many years and it’s great to have him on board.
Here’s looking forward to 2013 with such a fantastic Committee in place …
