The incoming Chairman to be heard
In the absence of formal elections to appoint a Chairman and Deputy Chairman, the Board was advised that appointees had been carried forward from 2019/20. However, in the light of Doug Barrow’s decision to stand down as Chairman of the Board, Deputy James Thomson would become Acting Chairman and Doug Barrow Acting Deputy Chairman until formal elections could take place.
The Acting Chairman commended the immediate past Chairman, Doug Barrow for his contribution to the work of the Board and these sentiments were echoed by Board Members. A vote of thanks and appreciation for the immediate past Chairman’s contribution to the work of the Board during his tenure as Chairman was moved, seconded and agreed unanimously.
