National Executive 2019 – 20

Vice President Tracey Pickin

Vice President Tracey Pickin

Where did the Summer go? I am now over half way through the year as your  Vice – President so thought I might let you know what I’ve been up to.

The Regional Lunches have been a delight, each lovely, each different except in the fact that all were attended by Tangent members out to have a good time with friends old and new. They really are a great opportunity to catch up with friends whom we don’t see so often.

We attach our Exec meetings to the lunches and I am enjoying being part of the team who manage the Association on your behalf and doing my best to be effective, efficient and supportive. President Sue asked me to lead a small working group to look at consolidating our many spreadsheets into a central directory and updating our website and we are making progress with this. 

We agreed some time ago to dispense with ‘The Shop’ as everything was available on line, therefore when I took over there was very little stock and I spent most of my time apologising for the poor selection so I and the other Exec members now only carry badges to sell but we each have a selection of badges for sale so do ‘stop us and buy one’, I also have the marcasite jewellery and there will soon be an order form on the website for these pieces.

I have received a number of orders for the Past Chairman’s marcasite brooches and would ask that you don’t leave orders until the last minute, please order early and put it up somewhere safe ( though not so safe you can’t remember where it is!).

I’m working with the Aviemore Conference Committee for 2021 and the 50th Anniversary Lunch Committee – both teams are working very hard to ensure the events are very special so do get the dates in your diary.

I have also been invited by a few clubs to attend/speak at their events which I have thoroughly enjoyed and is all good experience for next year. I am also working with my own club on plans for my year as your President….

Still lots to do though this year in my role of Vice. Looking forward to meeting and hearing from more of you.                           

In continued friendship
