| Beryl Hales, National Vice Chair
As Vice-Chair I am responsible for Recruitment, Development and Promotion. I work with Sara Trayers, National Recruitment Officer, on plans and activities to increase awareness and raise the profile of TG, to recruit new members and to open new groups and Guilds, whether online or meeting in person. During the pandemic this was mainly through our website, using Zoom, which has been a steep but interesting and exciting learning curve for us all.
I continue to be involved with the Townswoman magazine, which I am delighted to be able to do as I feel that it is such an interesting and vibrant publication and our main point of contact with members.
The Federations that I am Trustee contact for are Birmingham, Northern Ireland, Nottinghamshire, South Staffordshire, West Midlands and West Staffordshire Federations. I am also contact for a group of Guilds who are not in a Federation.
If you have any ideas, comments or suggestions about any of these aspects of TG, please get in touch.
