I have experience of Membership Councils and find them to be a necessary part of any relevant organisation which wishes itself to be monitored. I would like to give my input to Locala on a variety of subjects and would like to feel by doing so I have contributed something of value to the community. I feel I am being told to stand up and be counted and this I would like to do. My aim would to be as much use to the Members’ Council and also to the Directors. My professional skills, my experience of heading up a subsidiary of a globally orientated group of companies and a healthy attitude to spot procrastination would all stand me in good stead. I have lots of skills which I feel will be of benefit to Locala and its Members’ Council.
