Annual General Meeting with Insolvency and CICM HQ Update
East of England Chair Richard Brown reported on another good year, and on the first events in Cambridge and Norwich across the wider geographically expanded branch.
The Branch’s major conference Deal or No Deal, held in London in November, had not been as well attended as some but members attending from an amazing eight CICM Branches gave the best ever feedback on the venue, content and speakers. He thanked Goodman Masson for hosting and sponsoring, Advanced Collection Systems for their charity donation to GOSH and Cforia for sponsoring the business card draw.
Denise Bassingthwaighte’s Treasurer’s report advised a healthy bank balance despite additional costs of travelling across the Branch’s seven counties.
An eleven strong Branch Committee was elected – the existing nine plus Ron Bidwell of JLL and Andrew Martin of Hays. Atul Vadher took over as Chair from Richard Brown who became Vice Chair. Pete Whitmore thanked Richard for all that he had done as Chair over many years.
Carol Baker gave an update on, and sought views on, possible events and locations in 2019.
The Chair closed a stimulating and enjoyable evening by thanking FRP Advisory for kindly hosting the evening and for their generous hospitality.
