National Executive 2019 – 20

Vice President Tracey Pickin

Vice President Tracey Pickin

I am delighted to have been elected as your National Vice President and am just ‘recovering’ from the super weekend we all had in Torquay. The conference committee did a great job and the AGM was run very efficiently – many thanks to all involved in both.

For those who missed the AGM/magazine introductions, I’m married to Alan, live in South Warwickshire with two rescue cats (Bubbles and Fizz), worked in various roles for Revenue and Customs though am now retired. I keep busy as Chair of our Village Hall Committee, directing a play, fundraising for Acorns Children’s Hospices and as a Magistrate and of course now as your Vice President.

I’m sure I am not alone in taking on a new role in Tangent and therefore not alone in feeling excited but just a little bit nervous, fortunately we are all supported by experienced friends and I’ll be a quick learner. I am definitely looking forward to getting to know and work with the National Executive though am already sure that we will help and support one another as well as the members who contact us.

The Vice President’s role has changed this year with our new Membership Officer taking responsibility for membership issues. Encouraging new members is however something that hopefully we are all doing. I will still have responsibilities to work with conference organisers, representing Tangent within the four families, supporting President Sue whenever I can and looking after your orders for marcasite brooches as well as bringing sales items to the Regional Lunches. Given the subject of my speech at the AGM, I am genuinely keen to think about what Tangent looks like in the rest of the 21st Century.

Over the years I have met lots of lovely people across our wonderful organisation and I can’t wait to meet lots more of you over the coming years – do come and say hello if you see me around or drop me a line with your thoughts on our future.

In continued friendship

Tracey Pickin
