Members convene for Annual General Meeting of East Anglia RFCA 2024

On Tuesday 12th March 2024, East Anglia RFCA members from across our six counties gathered for the Association’s Annual General Meeting (AGM). In all, around 80 guests and staff attended the AGM virtually or in person.
The Association’s AGM is a showcase event; bringing together our Lord-Lieutenants, membership, key influencers from across the region and our units. It is one of the few regional opportunities where all of the single Services can gather to share experiences and create synergies. 

Association President and Lord-Lieutenant of Hertfordshire, Mr Robert Voss, led the proceedings alongside our Association Chair Brigadier Tim Seal TD ADC DL VR and Chief Executive Colonel Leona Barr-Jones VR.

East Anglia RFCA Chair Tim Seal delivered his first annual report, congratulating the volunteer membership for their dedicated support and highlighting work carried out by the Association’s staff during the past 12 months.

Three speakers were invited to present to our members this year, followed by a Questions & Answers session.

Commodore Jo Adey, ADC Commander Maritime Reserves, spoke about the importance of the Royal Navy and its role in maintaining global peace and security.

Huw Moores from MPCT explained the benefits to young people continuing their education through the Military Preparation College for Training and their growing footprint in the region. Two of the students from MPCT delighted our members with a personal account of their transformation through the programme.

Nigel Carr and Paul Randall from the Ulysses Trust highlighted the funding available to all cadets and reserve units for expeditions and inspired audiences with a video message from explorer Ray Mears.

Questions abounded for the speakers, and energetic discussions ensued. Members were able to continue their conversations over lunch.

Our Annual Report was submitted to members at the event, a hard copy of which they were able to take away. Members will, if the opportunity presents itself, share the stories contained within to raise awareness of the RFCA’s work in the region.
