2015 AGM News for WiT Members
Our 2015 AGM held on 28 April was a great event hosting 50 plus members and affiliates of Women in Tech...thank you to those who attended it was great to see you and fill you in on the plans for the next 12 months.The AGM saw some changes on the WiT Board and Chapters. We said farewell to our brilliant President, Sue Johnston after a two year stint, but thankfully we are not losing her forever as she is staying on as a Board Director. Our new President Fiona Hayes was welcomed to the big seat. Fiona is a fabulous asset to the WiT team and has been our ICT Chapter Chair for the last 12 months so has a very good understanding of our organisation and is very dedicated to continual improvement. Our Vice President Fiona Sheridan also stood down, this year after a number of years of dedicated work in the Vice President's chair. Our new Vice President Kristy Simpkin, who is our outgoing Treasurer will take on the role of Vice President and Sue Colclough one of our current Board Directors will be taking over the Treasurer role.
A number of new programs where announced at the AGM, including our Scholarships Program, Outreach Program and Regional activity.
