Welcome to a New Regional Chair for 2017
Our thanks to Michael Hand for leading the RTPI East of England, as Regional Chair, during 2016.
Michael is pictured left, handing over the Regional chain of office to Wendy Hague, who took over as RTPI East of England Regional Chair at the beginning of 2017.
Wendy's theme for 2017 is "Planning in the Spotlight" and, as part of her "mission statement" to fellow planners in the East of England she says: "The skills we possess as a profession are critical to delivering goals and reducing risk. As your new Regional Chair, I would like to urge you not to under-estimate your importance and to look forward to 2017 with renewed vigour and confidence".
Thanks to Jackie Ward
Our thanks to Jackie Ward, who relinquished the role of Regional Honorary Secretary at the end of 2016. Jackie will be sorely missed by all colleagues on the Regional Activities Committee, for her enthusiasm and commitment to the RTPI.
