The new Committee takes off from the start of the next meeting of the Management Committee in November 2014, and will serve for two years until November 2016.
I am sure everyone will want to join me in thanking retiring members of the Committee: Derek Barrie (Fife), Paul Childs (Liverpool), Stan Collins (Cumbria and South Lakeland), Daisy Cooper (Lewes), John Potter (Preston) and Rhys Taylor (Gwynedd) who between them have served many years on the Committee.
Special thanks to Veronica German who has served as four years as ALDC President (and now continues on the Committee as Welsh Representative)
Really glad to see Simon Allen o. The Committee. Simon is comparatively new to LD politics, but is a man with good liberal values.
