On Thursday 10 January the Merseyside and North Wales Branch held a well-attended Annual General Meeting at Leighton Hospital in Crewe. Branch Officer positions were elected as follows:

- Treasurer: Carol Delves, Retired Honorary Member
- Secretary: Samantha Lee, Category Tower Manager, Supply Chain Coordination Limited, Management Function of NHS Supply Chain
- Council Rep: David Ince, Head of Facilities at Glan Clwyd.
The Branch programme was also ratified and as mentioned before, we have reduced the amount of meetings from six to four with a consistent starting time of 3pm. We are also holding a Joint Study Day with the Northwest Branch in September.
At the meeting, Dave Wynn was presented with his Membership certificate by Mandy Cartmill.
Then, on Saturday 26 January the Branch held its post-Christmas annual function at Rowton Hall, just outside Chester. This was our traditional Burns night event and was attended by 23 Members and partners.
