Andrew Mutter stands down as Past President of the Society on 31 December 2013 after four years of stalwart service. The Society has therefore asked its members to elect a President to serve for the next four years, as President Elect 2014, President 2015-16 and Past President 2017.
We were privileged with two candidates, Peter Gregory and Ged Gast. The election was managed by the Electoral Reform Service and I enclose the Scrutineers Report of Voting.
Thank you to Peter Gregory and Ged Gast for their energy and commitment to the work of the Society and congratulations to Ged Gast as our President Elect from 1 January 2014.
