I hope you enjoyed our ‘Wonderful World of Webinars’ during BAA Online week last week. I managed to see many of them ‘live’ and will be catching those I missed over the next few weeks. Thank you for those who stayed for the AGM on the Thursday when we introduced our new Board and our award winners. I want to thank all those nominees both for Board and Awards – it was fabulous that you were put forward for these and I hope we see you again next year. Thanks to Claire Benton and the Conference team for putting a great programme together. I know Claire was beautifully calm when introducing the speakers, but I know what pressure she and Victoria were under behind the scene.
During the AGM, we said farewell to Sue Falkingham (Past President), Claire, Michelle Foster and Charlotte Rogers. All of whom will still be supporting BAA in their own way. Michelle has been made Regional CSO Lead for the Northwest, which is a great responsible role so we wish her the very best and will be working with Michelle as part of the Healthcare Science agenda.
Some of our nominees that were not elected to Board have agreed to work with Board on the various projects we have planned.
I am now looking forward to working with your Board and I hope you let us know what other areas you feel we need to focus on in the coming years.
