WE WELCOME new and returning members to the LFB Committee following elections at the Branch AGM in January. See our updated list of Committee contacts.

Our new job-share Branch Secretaries - pictured above - are Nick Renaud-Komiya (left) and Tony Levene (right), shown above taking minutes for the first time shortly after their election. In between them is Pennie Quinton, re-elected as Branch Chair.

Some voluntary Committee posts previously filled by only one member each are beginning to require a lot of work for a busy, active Branch with many members. For this reason there are now two Training Officers - Federica Tedeschi and Tim Gopsill – and two Membership and New Members officers – Francesca Marchese and Phil Sutcliffe.

There are vacancies for Vice-chair, Negotiations Officer and Welfare Officer, with elections expected in the February Branch meeting. See here for what these posts entail.

One election from the January AGM was invalid because a candidate was a temporary NUJ member. Only full members of London Freelance Branch can stand for Committee posts.
