GSSMS New Committee Structure

December 4, 2011

Following the AGM of 4th December 2011 Glasgow South Ship Modellers Society can announce it has two new members on its Standing Committee.  Secretary for 9 years Gordon Morlan officially stood down to make way for some new blood.  Gordon commenting at the meeting said that “he wished to peruse other interests such as cycling and his new found interest in rowing.  Work commitments had also taken their toll and meant that keeping in touch with members was becoming more and more difficult”.  Gordon felt the “club deserved better and as a result it was his duty to stand down”.

As a result of the above the make up of the new Standing Committee is as follows:

  • Chair – James Cox
  • Vice Chair – Stevie Huston
  • Treasurer – John Hutton
  • Secretary – Len Clarke
  • Competition Organiser – Robert Gorman

I think everyone will join me in congratulating them and wish them well in taking the club forward in these challenging times.
