Chatter From The Chair – Autumn 2017

Just a quick update from me this quarter, with Amanda having stolen most of the material I was going to use in her update!

So the first quarter of the year has passed us by with the first ALUCA seminars for the year being held across the state, with many more upcoming in the second quarter of the year.  Please refer to the website for details of the next seminar near you.

A lot is happening within ALUCA, and as you know, within our industry.  We are working tirelessly to transform ALUCA to maintain its relevance and importance in these days of profound change, and we have rolled out details of our strategy for the years ahead. Details of progress against the strategy are in Amanda’s update, and we look forward to bringing you more updates as work progresses, as well as updates on other initiatives that are underway in the background including the 2018 conference.

It has been great to meet so many of you at the sessions I have attended, and as ever, I am always available for a chat about our association, our industry, our disciplines, and the fortunes of the Welsh national soccer team.   If there’s anything you’d like to have a chat about in the meantime, please feel free to contact me at, or our CEO, Amanda McKernan, at
