Notice from the Chair: thank you to recent Board members for their service

Greetings Lochac

I would like to thank and acknowledge two members of the Board who have resigned recently, and ask – have you thought about Board service?

Firstly, I would like to thank Simon Miller (Lord Semeon Aleksandrovich Dragon) for his tenure on the Board. His particular expertise has been appreciated by members past and present.

Additionally I would like to thank Clem Avenell (Sir Clement von Arlon) for his time on the Board, including his assistance to me as Deputy Chair.

There has been a lot of activity and transition as we move to a Board with more formal governance procedures, and a lot of hard work behind the scenes. We have advertisements out at present for Board Members and Board Assistants, and I urge you to consider these rewarding roles.

Yours in service
Georgia Winter
Chair
