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 has been extremely welcoming and supportive. I have enjoyed learning how to administer the AUE website and look forward to receiving your regular contributions to the many pages e.g. case studies, regional meetings, events, news, vacancies 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.
