The BSKA AGM was recently held and the committee post were all up for re-election. This happens every three years. This year Brian Slater retired from the committee. We would like to thank Brian for the hard work and support he has given the association over the years. For many of those years as our chairman. We hope that when he can, Brian will still attend meetings and allow us to draw on his great knowledge and experience.
A new appointment by the committee this year is Junior Representative. Bernice Campbell-Jones is now a committee member and has taken on this role. We would ask each club to appoint a junior representative who can contact Bernice at any time and relay younger members concerns or wishes. More information and contact details will follow.
