Forth Valley and Lomond LEADER Local Action Group are delighted to announce the appointment of their new Chair, Douglas Johnston at their recent AGM on 21 March 2018. Douglas was previously one of the Vice Chairs of the LAG and brings a wealth of community, business and public sector experience to the role, as well as knowledge of how LEADER works. A report on the activities of the LAG was also presented at the AGM and can be found here.
In addition to a new Chair, the LAG also welcomes a new Vice Chair, Julie McGrath from Clackmannanshire Third Sector Interface and Lynn Hamilton, from VisitScotland who has agreed to continue in her Vice Chair role too.
As Chair, Douglas' first action was to acknowledge the incredible amount of time and energy his predecessor, Peter Sunderland, had invested in developing the current LEADER programme and thanked him on behalf of the whole LAG.
The Chair and Vice Chair provide invaluable guidance to the running and governance of the programme and can be contacted through firstname.lastname@example.org.
