Our Chief Executive, Jane Ide, leads a small (but perfectly formed) dynamic, focused and energetic team to deliver real value to our members.
We're rarely in the office and usually out and about meeting members, running events and delivering services on their behalf.
You can contact us via our individual Twitter profiles, or use the 'contact us' details at the bottom of the page.
