It is with much sadness and regret that I have to advise you that Laura Ritchie has now notified us in writing of her decision to resign as RA Chair, and also from the RA Board, as of 12/05/15.
This development came unexpectedly, and was made by Laura for personal reasons which were not expanded on in her letter of resignation hence we would ask you all to please respect her decision accordingly.
As current RA Vice-Chairman, I will therefore be taking on with immediate effect the role of Acting Chairman of the Association until after the AGM and Conference Weekend in early July 2015, when the Officers for 2015/16 will be elected.
The Association is very grateful to Laura for the many contributions she has made to the RA during her period on the Board, and for her valued efforts during her short time as its Chair. We all send her every good wishes for the future.
Ian Campbell – Acting Chairman
