KCLEA Committee

The "day to day" business of the Association is managed by the Committee, elected by the AGM, along with any sub-committees and co-opted members as the committee deems necessary from time to time. For a list of current members of the committee, please see below. The Committee is constantly on the lookout for new members - it is rare for all positions to be filled - so if you are willing to help in any capacity please contact the Honorary Secretary. It is particularly important that we persuade some "younger blood" to stand for committee positions to ensure a successful future for the association. Even the most active positions do not require a great deal of time; generally there are 5 or 6 committee meetings per year, during which we try to get most of the work done, and you might spend the odd hour here and there working outside the meetings.

President Liz Beckmann (1970 - 1974)
