Happy New Year from APMP UK

Happy New Year to you from your APMP UK Chapter. I hope that you enjoyed a relaxing break with family and friends and were able to re-charge ready for 2019.

This email marks my first official communication to you as your UK Chapter Chair for 2019.

Having been a member of the APMP since 2012, and a member of the UK Board as Marketing and Communications Director for the majority of 2018, I am thrilled to take on this new role for #YourAPMP, and am looking forward to being part of an exciting year of developments for the Chapter and our industry.

This year I am going to focus on increasing the number of industry-related events to share best practice and continue to educate ourselves. I am also looking to further the APMP UK Apprenticeship Scheme and hope to get the first apprentices on-board as soon as possible.

Over the coming weeks, we will be in touch with more details about what we have in store for 2019, but I would encourage all members to contribute to those plans now by getting in touch with me; I would love to hear what you want from APMP in the coming year.

I would also like to welcome Eve Upton as the new APMP UK Treasurer. Eve takes over from Martin Kaye who retired from the Board at the end of 2018. We thank Martin for his years of service on the Board and hope to see him at this year's events, we don't know how we will cope without him!

Lastly, I’d like to pass on my thanks to Jon Darby who led the chapter so ably and enthusiastically through 2018. Jon has been a great advocate of APMP UK and will continue on the Board, supporting of the work of the Association.
