New Chair at Annual General Meeting

Chairman’s introduction 2019-2020

Like many of you I was unable to attend our AGM. My dear husband had booked tickets for “Les Miserables” in Birmingham as a surprise, and only remembered to tell me the date in early March.

Is it a first when both the incoming Chairman and Vice were not present at the AGM?

Thank you all for your support and trust, I have so much still to learn about Tangent and shall be relying on the advice and experience of you all.

For those of you who don’t know much about me I was a founder member of Lichfield District Circle, and privileged to be elected as founder Chairman. When John’s job took us to Sheffield we both transferred into Sheffield Ladies Circle and Round Table, and I became Chairman again. On our return to Lichfield ten years later (John’s job move again), I was too old to return to Circle.

I was delighted when Ruth asked me to be an honorary member of Tangent during her year as Chairman and have enjoyed my role as Treasurer over the past two years.

I am looking forward to the year ahead and continuing the good relationship we have with both Lichfield Ladies Circle and Lichfield Tangles, especially as my younger daughter is a member of Lichfield Circle.

An enormous thanks to all the Executive Officers who volunteered to continue, or take on new roles. They have a wealth of experience to plan for a memorable year ahead.

I look forward to seeing you all at our meetings throughout the year.
