Annual Presidents & Secretaries Conference Committee Meeting 21st September 2011
Kim Seth, the Law Society’s South Eastern Regional Manager, had asked me earlier this year if I had wanted to partake in this committee meeting as I had always shown an active interest in helping out with such matters and for being involved with Law Society business. Needless to say that it was an opportunity that I did not want to miss and one that I was very honoured to accept! I was emailed the agenda outlining all of the discussion points and with attached feedback forms from the Presidents & Secretaries Conference held in May 2011 which I had of course attended myself. I travelled up to London to attend the meeting and shared my own views and feedback where appropriate. I provided the committee with some constructive criticism on certain topics and areas that had been covered and I came up with a number of ideas on how to improve next year’s conference in May 2012. I was also pleased to meet up with other people within the Law Society who were as keen as me to help out and make a difference including Robin Ap Cynam (Council Member), Keith Etherington (Working Group 2 on the operating manual), Jonathan Smithers (Conveyancing & Land Law Committee and Council Member) and Sanjit Dhadda (Head of Relationship Management).
