We have been members of the FSB (Federation of Small Businesses) since 2003 and more recently, since 2013, David has been more involved at the regional level. In 2013 he joined the Belfast South branch as a volunteer and committee member and in 2016 was elected Chairman of the branch.
The FSB has undergone a major Refresh project with implementation during 2018. As a consequences of this a number of people stood down and David took the opportunity to get more involved with the organisation at both Regional and National level.
During 2018 the position of Regional Councillor became free and a co-option was accepted by David. The Regional Councillor is the representative for an area (12 in the UK - reduced from 33 in the Refresh project) who looks after the member interests from their region, sitting with the board 6 times a year, siting on the Regional Committee and monitoring and recommending actions on members behalf in relation to there membership.
The position, and others, are up for election in Nov 2018 and David is standing for for the position - if you are a member your vote on his behalf would be most welcome - emails inviting members to vote were sent out on Mon 12th November by the Federation of Small Businesses.Read more on David's article on his LinkedIn profile.
