All change for the Deputy Chair

Simon Needham has been Deputy Chair of the organisation for many years. We have been grateful for his steady and considered contribution in that role. Due to changes in his personal circumstances he has stepped back from that role but we are delighted to confirm he remains both Chair of the East Midlands Region, and a Board member

Following an election process by the regional chairs, we are delighted to confirm Lilian Owens as the new Chair of the Regional Chairs, and Deputy Chairman of the national body. Lilian has a long association both with member groups in the West Midlands, and the national body where she has been involved for many years.

So it’s a big shout out to say thank you to Simon and Lilian for everything they have done and continue to do. Their past contributions are very much appreciated, and we are looking forward with anticipation to working with them in their new roles.
