New Board Appointments
We are delighted to announce that Linda Skelton (England) and Jawed Khan (Italy) have accepted an invitation to join the WGMA Board and were formally appointed at a Board meeting on Wednesday 3rd March. Both Linda and Jawed have been working with us as part of the management team since December last year and have already made valuable contributions to our plans for the future.
We are attaching below some biographical details for both our new Board members and we know that they are looking forward to meeting you all at the first opportunity - maybe Bra if all goes well. Linda has already done some groundwork in creating a network of contacts for the further development of Women Grand Masters and Jawed will be taking over more of the secretarial load from Adrian in the next few months.
We would also like to welcome Nick Cane from the Welsh Dragons who has offered to take on the role of website manager from Steve Winnall. Steve has made a massive contribution to the public image of WGMA through our existing website which has become an important notice board for all matters relating to Grand Masters hockey. Steve has expressed a wish to stand down later this year but has agreed to work with Nick on a smooth transition which should ensure that communication both with our members and with the world in general is unaffected.
Despite the prolonged inactivity on the hockey pitch WGMA continues to plan for better times ahead. Domestic hockey is beginning to return and we hope that we can meet some of our friends from further afield before the end of this year.
