MSBA Committee Changes


Reluctantly, because of health and professional pressures, John Gore has decided to resign from the position of Chairman of the MSBA. All the members would like to thank John for his wisdom and good service to the Association.

On John’s recommendation, Brian Corbett will be acting as Chairman, and Tony Lavelle will be acting as Vice Chairman, subject to ratification at the next AGM.


Gavin Parson, again due to professional pressures would like to pass on the mantle of MSBA secretary. Although we have been asking for volunteers at the last two members’ business meetings, we would also welcome and consider the offer of administrative support, including minute taking at the monthly meetings, on a fee paid basis.
