Thank you to all who voted in our Trustee elections. The results of which have given us lots of food for thought.

The Trustee Board is:

Chair – Chris Burns, BBC

Deputy Chair - Steve Parkinson, Bauer Media

John Dash, John Dash Media

Camilla Byk,

Matt Payton, Radiocentre

Sam Bailey, BBC

Jonty Usborne, Student Radio Association

John Baish, BBC Radio Berkshire

In addition Dom Chambers will Chair a new Board made up of our affiliated members – SRA, CMA, SW, RIG, Prison Radio and Hospital Radio. Chris Lycett will start to work with our Fellows and set up a Fellows Timebank, so we can tap into their knowledge and expertise. John Dash will work with the Local Branch Chairs, especially those in the nations to ensure that we don’t fall into the trap of being too London centric. There is a lot of talent in this industry across the whole and we should celebrate it all. Iain Betson will work with us to help ensure the Radio Skills Council takes into account the skills our craft areas need and Mal Reding and I are looking at ways to ensure we never forget that our industry is all about audiences.

- Chris Burns, Chair.
