Appointed to the post in 2014, following in the footsteps of Sally Seanor, I have always worked in secretarial and admin posts, including several membership departments/roles. Everyone I have met in the AUE so far has been extremely welcoming and supportive. I have enjoyed learning to administer the new AUE website and look forward to receiving your regular contributions to the many pages e.g. regional meetings, events, news etc. As a new member to the association I found it invaluable to attend the Annual Conference where I could network with other members in a face-to-face environment.
