Annual General Meeting of BESA
12 Nov
Dear Colleagues, I am delighted to inform you that at the Annual General Meeting of BESA member organisations held last week, it was announced that our very own Shola Omogbehin, Head of Education Traded Services, was successfully appointed to the Executive Council of BESA. This is following a highly contested election process open to all 400 plus member organisations of BESA. BESA is accountable to its Executive Council of elected representatives from the UK education suppliers industry, with council members serving a three year term. Our representation on the Council will no doubt further strengthen the HES brand, and potentially open up commercial opportunities that we can explore and nurture to support our schools further. Kind Regards, Trevor
