Earlier this week I chaired the last Master’s Committee of my year and was delighted to welcome Rob Casey, Walbrook Warden Elect, to join us and help get him “up to speed” on the initiatives we are taking and the issues we face.
Discussions included how best to recruit new younger Members into our Company, developing relationships with professional institutions to help grow our membership at more senior levels, the organisation of the WET10 event in Spring 2018 and how best the Master’s Committee can work with the Past Masters for the maximum benefit of our Company. You will see more details of the outcome of all these discussions in the next few months.
Mike Williamson will take on the role of chairing the Committee once he is installed as Master for 2017/18 and we all wished him every success in his endeavours. I took the opportunity to thank the Wardens and our Clerk for supporting me in what has been an exciting and enjoyable year.
