At our recent AGM we voted a change to the executive. Our new President is Nathan Nixon, Secretary is Alison Livermore and Treasurer is Dianne Davey. Alison and Dianne are Publicity Officers. The remainder of the positions will be listed in the Minutes which will be included in the next newsletter.

One very important outcome from the AGM are our first ever life memberships. Awarded to Julie Stott and Joy Walters, the executive and those present felt their outstanding and diligent contributions to the AMHBN should be recognised. Congratulations and our heartfelt thanks to you both for your extraordinary achievements in respect to breed development and sheer hard work regards the association. The new generation of Miniature Hereford breeders have an easy task because of your expertise and commitment to excellence, and a robust and growing association to take us forward into an exciting future.

Happy end of 2017, Christmas and the SUMMER newsletter is nearly ready to be posted to AMHBN members.
