Election results:

We were overwhelmed by the response to our call for nomintaions, and the resulting very strong field of candidates made decision making very difficult. After extensive deliberations, we are pleased to announce our new SAM committee:

Chair: Charlotte Berry

Traesurer: Alison Diamond

Secretary: Victoria Stevens

Training Officers: Carly Randall and Sian Yates

Communications Officers: Amy Hurst and Kelda Roe

Social Media Officers: Chloe Andersen and Jim Ranahan

Museum Liaison Officers: Alexia Clark and Peter Lester

We have had to say goodbye to our outgoing officers Claire Parker, Pamela McIntyre and Richard Wragg; we are very grateful to them for all their hard work in establishing SAM and helping to build it during its first year. 
We would like to thank everyone who put themselves forward for election, and for the committment everyone has shown to SAM by offering their time and skills. We look forward to developing all the groundwork we have so far achieved and launching a strong events programme after the current situation has passed.

Latest event:

We look forward to developing our event schedule once the current situation has come to an end. In the meantime, we are planning the programme and look forward to sharing this with you in due course.
