Back together for our AGM
SELECT’s annual general meeting is held in-person again for the first time since 2019
Amendment 2 and the impact it is having on Members was the main topic of conversation at this year’s SELECT Annual General Meeting, which returned in person after a break of three years.
Members, staff and office bearers gathered at the Doubletree Edinburgh North Queensferry on 1 June for the 110th AGM, which saw Alistair Grant from Elgin elected as SELECT President and Edinburgh’s Mike Stark confirmed as Vice-President.
The event also featured a technical update by Bob Cairney, Director of Technical Services, who provided an overview of some of the main changes to Amendment 2 of the Wiring Regulations, before answering questions from delegates.
“After two years of online meetings and virtual events, it was great to finally meet up face-to-face again”
After handing over to Alistair, new Immediate Past President Donald W Orr told the delegates: “I have been honoured to have played my part in helping SELECT’s work during this time.
“It’s been a very unusual term of office, as most events have been online, but I have enjoyed it thoroughly. I also appreciate the work which has been conducted by my fellow office-bearers, Branch Members and staff to keep our association progressing in such a positive way.”
The event also featured tributes to former association President Richard ‘Dick’ Allan and SELECT Technical Adviser Malcolm Duncan, who passed away in August 2021 and January 2022 respectively.
“We have risen to all the challenges and can look back – and forward – with much satisfaction and confidence”
Association Secretary John McGhee said: “After two years of online meetings and virtual events, it was great to finally meet up face-to-face again and discuss the association’s many achievements and our plans for the future.
“The pandemic and Brexit have brought many challenges to SELECT and its Members. But, as the AGM demonstrates, we have risen to them all and can look back – and forward – with much satisfaction and confidence.”
