Good afternoon and welcome to The British Deer Society

New Chairman for the BDS

You will see from the Spring edition of the Deer Journal due out this weekend, that our current Chairman, Michael Thick, will not be standing for re-election at the AGM in May due to the increased volume of his external work commitments.

The Board is therefore progressing a replacement Chairman of the Society. This is a high profile, unremunerated role which carries with it significant responsibilities not least chairing the Board of Trustee Directors.

The Board has identified a well qualified potential successor but will take submissions from any member who feels that he/she might have the essential attributes to fulfil such a role and who will be able to devote the necessary time to leading the Society forward. Any interested member should respond in writing to the General Manager, including their CV and vision statement, no later than 2nd February 2018.
