Thank you to all sixteen candidates who put themselves forward and commiserations to those who were not elected this time. We do hope they will stand again next year. Thank you to members like you who voted.

I hope you will join me in congratulating our new BAA Board Directors and wishing them well. I look forward to working with them over the next 12 months as we look to continue our support to members.
