Law Society AGM 2017

The Law Society held its Annual General Meeting on the 13th January 2017 at the Palace Hotel. A packed agenda led to lively debates on a number of issues. It was good to see such a large turnout with many of the Society’s members taking part in the discussions.

This year Mr Simon Cain stepped down after serving two years as President and many years on Council. Simon was replaced as President by current Vice President Jane Gray. Irini Newby was elected as Vice President and for the first time both positions are held by women. Jane is only the second female President in the Society’s history. Completing the changes, Mr Tim Swift was unanimously elected to Council. Congratulations to Jane, Irini and Tim.

The AGM was followed by lunch and drinks where members were able to meet with colleagues in an informal setting.

The Society should like to thank Simon and Council for all the hard work of the past year.

The first meeting of the new Council will take place on the first Thursday in February. Should members have issues to raise please contact Jacky or Juan at the Society who will present your communication to Council.
