Women in FM committee will soon have four vacancies on their committee following the conference on 1st March. Where they bid a fond farewell to exiting Chair, Jackie Furey and Secretary Pauline Mitchell.

Lathbury commented “It has been great to work with people like Jackie and Pauline, they are loyal volunteers and have been an inspiration to work with. They are definitely big shoes to fill. I am proud to take over the reigns as Chair of Women in FM from Jackie and follow in the footsteps of some of my hero’s – Liz Kentish, Lucy Jeynes, Julie Kortens and Anne Lennox-Martin”.
