Message from the Chair
Hilary Snell our Area Secretary, Mike Cannell our Media Officer and my-self travelled to York for the Ramblers General Council, really the Annual General Meeting.
We acted on your behalf as delegates voting on proposals from Areas across the country. Essex is one of the biggest Areas which has three votes most of the others have two.
This event allows for a chance to talk to the Board of Trustees, Central Office staff and other Areas and Groups and hear their problem and successes, networking for everyone’s benefit. The reporting of the achievements during the year of the Ramblers, its Finance position the work done in Wales and Scotland were of interest. However the debates and votes taken on issues raised by members were of greater importance.
A report on those of interest to us and one from Mike reflecting his views of the weekend will be in May's Essex Area Update.
However with the Chief Executive leaving and the Governance Process been voted out, we are in period of change.
It is likely following the decision on the Governance we will be asked for our views on communication, access to information, support from Central Office and I am hopeful we can use the Area Council to formulate our idea and objectives.
The Area Council is open to all members, why not come along and voice your views, you will be very welcome.
Alan Goffee - Chair Essex Ramblers
