Last night we attended an evening seminar by Cupa Natural Slate – Specifying Natural Roofing Slate at Niagara Conference & Leisure, Hillsborough,
Sheffield. This event was hosted by the Association of Building Engineers Yorkshire and Humber regional committee and followed their Annual General Meeting.
Rhys and Michelle, as well as being full members of the Association of Building Engineers, both served as active members on the regional committee. Rhys has made the decision however to stand down and to bring to an end 11 consecutive years of representation. He served initially on the regional branch committee followed by the National Council and Presidential team where he served as President of the Association of Building Engineers and latterly on the regional committee finishing as its Chairman.
The Regional committee would like to thank Rhys for all his hard work; a fellow committee member had this to say:
“It’s a shame he is stepping back because he is a real driving force to the ABE and a credit to the region. I shall miss him because he is a real character and always a pleasure to have been involved with the ABE along side of him.”
Michelle is pleased to have been elected to serve as the Region’s Secretary and takes over the role from Mike Hardeman and our thanks go to him; we would also like to congratulate
Basil Parylo on his election to Chairman and to thank Bernard Henry for agreeing to continue as regional treasurer.
