National President - Dave Campbell

I feel very honoured to have been elected as the 72nd President of our great organisation. It was healthy to have so many posts contested at this year’s AGM and I am delighted to welcome on board the successful candidates for the posts of Vice President (Phil Ellis), Secretary (Sean McCormick), Treasurer (David Leach) and National Councillors Liaison Officer (Tom Atkins).

Our relationship with the other 3 members of the Round Table family continues to strengthen and we are now working together as a strong team. Membership is always high on our list of priorities and I shall be working closely with the incoming President of Round Table, Steve Grew.

We recognise that we need to increase the transfer rate from Table to 41 club and that our existing clubs may have very different interests from potential members who are just leaving Round Table. During my year I want to encourage the establishment of new 41 clubs that will appeal to those younger men – so that they can continue to enjoy the friendship and fellowship that they experienced in Round Table. These potential members are our future and I want them to embrace our motto “Continued Friendship”

My theme to support younger people led me to think about those who don’t have the advantages that we enjoy and I am delighted to have formed a close relationship with The Prince’s Trust, which is my charity for the year. Last year alone, the trust enabled some 60,000 young people to believe in themselves and strive to achieve a better future. This year, rather fittingly, it is the Trust’s 41st anniversary and I am excited about the impact we can make on young peoples lives. You can help by contributing vital support through fundraising or sharing your business expertise and other skills by becoming volunteers and mentors. My strap line of “Inspiring Young Lives” says it all and you can donate to this great charity through the following link

In continued friendship

Dave
