A message from our Elections Officer, Virginia Campbell, about the recent WCC UK steering committee elections:
“On behalf of the WCC UK Steering Committee, I am pleased to announced that Susan Deacy and Claire Millington have been elected to join the Steering Committee. They will assume their places on the committee at the AGM in April 2017, serving for a term of four years.
I would like to thank all members who voted, and more importantly, the candidates who offered their time to serve the WCC. It was a close contest, and the dedication and commitment of all of the candidates to the work of the WCC is commendable.”
