Farewell and Thanks to Denni Turp
Our North West Wales Regional Officer is retiring at the end of this week. We are extremely grateful to Denni for all her amazing work for DAC over the past 5 years. She will be missed by the team and all the members, especially those members within NW Wales who have worked closely with her throughout her time at DAC. The North West Region has benefited enormously from Denni’s passion and energy and leaves a wonderful legacy in the publications she has been instrumental in creating.
Many thanks Denni and very best wishes for a long and happy retirement from us all.
DAC are pleased to announce that Alan Whitfield has been confirmed as DAC’s new North West Wales Regional Officer.
He will commence his new role on July 2nd.
Good luck to Alan in his new role.
Congratulations to our Honorary Treasurer Joanne Taylor
Jo was awarded the 2018 Grant Stephens Family Law Adviser Award at the Arts and Business Cymru awards last week for her outstanding contribution as a Board member of DAC. Jo has advised and supported DAC since joining us as a Co-Opted Trustee in September 2013 and becoming our Treasurer in October 2015. Jo has shown her commitment to the organisation through her input to business plans; action plans; structural review; and attendance at away days, meetings and events; working hard to establish a long-term future for DAC. In addition to helping the organisation introduce transparent, streamlined financial processes, Jo has recently led the organisation through registration as a CIO and helped recruit a new Finance Officer and a New Director. Jo is a Charities and Not for Profit Senior Manager for Broomfield Alexander in Newport and we are thrilled that her input has been recognised by the awards panel at Arts and Business Cymru.
May we also take this opportunity to recognise the enormous input that Jo Taylor has made to the future stability of DAC, to congratulate her on her award and to extend a huge thank you to her.
