Your Council is delighted to announce that a replacement has been recruited for Graham Hogg, who recently resigned as Chairman of the Society.
Our Chairman Designate is Tony Harrop, an enthusiastic member of the Society, who lives in Leicestershire. Tony's background is in local government, social care, health and the voluntary sector. He was formerly Director of Corporate Management and, prior to that, Director of Social Services for Leicestershire County Council. He currently chairs the Trustee Board of Action Homeless, Leicester. He was awarded the OBE for services to social care in 2003, and received an honorary degree from Leicester De Montfort University the following year.
Tony will attend his first Council meeting in May as Chairman Designate; and will formally offer himself for election as Chairman to the attendees at the November 2015 Annual General Meeting of our Society.
All of us on Council are delighted to welcome him to our fellowship, and we look forward to working with him to continue the work so admirably undertaken for the Society by his predecessor, Graham Hogg.
