DHACA Governance

KSS AHSN’s kind sponsorship has now given us a new lease of life so we are establishing proper governance including oversight of expenditure and democratic direction. Following appeals both in these newsletters and at our previous DHACA Days, three people have kindly stepped forward so far to help: Patricia Roberts, Seb Tucknot and Pilar Fernandez-Hermida, who join Graham and me. We will be having our first conference call on 8th January so if anyone else has a burning desire for involvement, do preferably let me know before then so we can include you.

Pitching on 5th February

We are still extremely short of pitching companies for this event. Although there is no commitment to fund the two winners, with a dozen financiers on the panel there’s a jolly good chance that those that come over well will get offers. At the worst you’ll get great experience, and a lovely big bottle of high quality bubbly if you win! What’s not to like?

That’s it for 2019.  Wishing you a great Christmas and a very successful 2020,

Kind regards,
Charles
