Replacement of Speaker Secretary
Ken Chadwick has already done 2 extra years, over and above his normal 3 year tenure, as Speaker Secretary and wishes to relinquish the job at the end of this year.
Mike Hughes has appealed to the membership of the Forum on several occasions with regard to someone filling this important role, but no-one has come forward.
So with the possibility of the Forum folding at the end of the year, Mike Hughes in desperation asked the committee for ideas. Monty Navias and Tim Allen agreed to share the role of Speaker Secretary whilst retaining there existing roles of Treasurer and Registrar respectively. Their new role will begin at the start of next year.
Corrections 7/4/2017 – Ken Chadwick has done two full terms of 3 years and the new Speaker Secretaries’ term/s will start from the AGM. This is to enable them to have a programme in place by the start of the New Year.
