Dear Colleagues

This is my first letter as vice chair, an opportunity that has allowed me to take a trip down memory lane and reflect on the
changes we have faced at CNW.

I have been part of CNW for a few years now years and I have witnessed some wonderful changes (be it new leadership, new speakers and new venues) and some difficult ones – the loss of Pat Howard.

It’s always difficult when I think of the losses we have had to the committee, but hopeful when I think of the future.

It’s often said that change is the only constant in life, yet we can sometimes be predisposed to resist change. Despite this resistance to change, it is more important than ever. In today’s society the pace of change is immensely faster, and it will only continue to accelerate.

So I take this opportunity to thank you, the members of CNW, for all the continuous help and support you have provided in amidst these changes.

Be it helping us set – up at the CPD evening meetings/workshops or attending the meetings on some snowy days/evenings – we the committee at CNW thank you!

On a final note, if there is anyone who would like to consider getting involved or has any new ideas, then they can contact any committee members for more information.

Your feedback is much wanted!

I wish you all a wonderful Easter and here’s to hoping we have a sunny start to Spring 2018.
