Change in the Branch - welcomes to the Committee
The Freelance welcomes new NUJ London Freelance Branch committee members, and members who are returning to their posts or taking up new ones. New faces on the committee are Sonya Thomas, now joint equality officer with Pennie Quinton; Jon Holden as New Members' Rep; Arjum Wajid as job-share training officer with Julio Etchart; and Janet Awe and Rosanne Edelman join the committee as members at large.
Janet is administrator for the Branch's new Twitter account (see www.londonfreelance.org/fl/1202twit.html) and Rosanne will be focusing on campaigning around Working Tax Credit and the threatened forthcoming Universal Credit - see www.londonfreelance.org/fl/1202tax.html
Padraig Belton takes over as Branch secretary, with Fiona O'Cleirigh as vice-chair. Congratulations to outgoing Secretary Tom Davies on the birth of his daughter: Tom will continue as a member at large on the Branch committee. There is a full list of all the new faces and old hands on the Branch committee - and their email contacts - at www.londonfreelance.org/lfb/contact.html
A guide to LFB and its meetings for new members - produced by new member Jon Holden - will be in the Freelance and online soon.
