Chair's Update Autumn 2014
Huw Cooper’s first Chairman’s message
Our conference and AGM in Keele in September seem like yesterday, but time flies by and I am now nearly two months into the new role of Chairman. Therefore I must begin this message with a big thankyou and tribute to the previous chairman Kevin Munro, who is to be honest a hard act to follow. Kevin has led the society superbly for the last two years, during which time a number of challenging issues arose and were admirably dealt with by him. The complexity and history of the BSA is significant and it is remarkable how much activity there is in different aspects of the society. The achievements attained by the BSA over the last two years were outlined clearly in Kevin’s last chairman’s message and are substantial- we have certainly got a massive amount done and, in my view, moved our society on towards a more modern, relevant and responsive organisation.
