Eleanor Burquest steps up after three years with the Association

Eleanor Burquest joined the Association in 2015 as our first Graduate Trainee. Her post was the first time that the Association had grown in over 30 years and therefore marked a huge change for our small team. She took on responsibilities for managing events and tracking data and even in a short period of time has made a positive contribution to the Association.

She recently reached her third anniversary and has stepped up into the role of Acting Events Manager. She has already been thoroughly challenged with the organisation of the Annual Conference and tonight's AGM and Annual Dinner will test her ability to remain calm under pressure. We are sure that both events will be a triumph.
