At the 2019 branch AGM, the committee for the West of Scotland unanimously selected Alan Gilmour of Balfour Beatty as the new branch chairman, starting in the 2020 new year. The existing branch chairman John Barnard stands down at the end of the year after two successful years as chairman and over twenty years on the committee. At the same time John Chambers also of Balfour Beatty was elected as branch vice chairman. The rest of the branch officers remain unchanged.
John Barnard said;
“It has been an exciting and busy two years for the branch with many challenges in a difficult uncertain time for the Scottish Construction industry. The severe problems of mental health within Construction in Scotland has however eventually become more widely recognised.”
Thank you to John, and everything he has contributed to the branch over the past 20+ years.
