Doherty elected as president

On Thursday 13 July 2017, The Concrete Society held its Annual General Meeting at its Headquarters in Camberley, Surrey. William Doherty of Creagh Concrete was elected as Society President for a two year term, taking the reins from outgoing President Martyn Fear of Specialist Precast Products. Fear commented, “I have really enjoyed my two years’ presidency. I have been constantly impressed with The Concrete Society and would like to thank both the staff and the Regional Network of volunteers for their energy in offering a broad range of technical and social activities to Society members and non-members in the UK.”

The newly elected President paid tribute to Fear, who has served The Concrete Society for many years before his presidential term. “It has been a pleasure to work with Martyn during the past six years that we have been on Council together.” Doherty added, “The President and Council are reliant on the MD and staff for the day-to-day running of The Society, and I look forward to working with them during my two-year term.” He assured attendees that he will visit each Region at least once during his term in office, with hopes to attend one technical and one social event per Region.

Further changes to senior officers; Former Treasurer, Andrew Bourne of Sika was elected President Designate, and Council member Deiniol Williams of Fosroc was elected as Treasurer.
