New Secretariat begins work

The Association Management Company took over from Build UK at the beginning of July and has wasted no time in getting down to work.

Joe Chalk has been appointed as general manager and is overseeing the implementation of the association’s strategy and its day-to-day running.

He will be supported by marketing executive Daniel Surey who is responsible for communications, including the RIDBA Journal, while membership support coordinator Sam Reed will be on hand to help with accounts and membership enquiries.

Among one of the first tasks for the new team is to ensure the smooth running of the RIDBA Awards which will take place at the Macdonald Hotel, in Manchester, in September. Attentions are also on the next edition of the RIDBA Journal, which is also just around the corner, as are membership subscription renewals.

Joe said: “We worked closely with the Board and Build UK in the months leading up to July to ensure we hit the ground running.

“We have already received lots of welcoming calls and emails from members and we look forward to working with RIDBA in the weeks, months and years ahead.”
