Peter Montgomery, JP, has been appointed Registrar, while the office of Treasurer has gone to Geoff Pownall, JP.
The two are filling part-time positions following the recent resignation of Roger Brookes. Association President, Selwyn Haworth, says it has been decided to split the duties traditionally managed by the Registrar alone, as the two new roles reflect the quite different responsibilities, particularly with our Association’s new computer programmes and recent legislative changes.
Peter Montgomery is a member of three Institutes - Chartered Accountants, Secretaries and Corporate Managers - as well as other professional groups and he is an accountancy consultant working across a wide range of commercial undertakings including not-for-profit entities. He has been a Justice of the Peace since 1995.
Geoff Pownall is also a member of the Chartered Accountants’ Institute, owns a consulting company providing compliance and administration services to individuals and charities and holds office in several professional bodies. Geoff was appointed Justice of the Peace in 1992.
“The appointment of Peter and Geoff will assist our Association,” Selwyn Haworth says, “to meet the ongoing changing needs of our Council and members for now and the future“
