The 2016 Conference and Annual General Meeting of CICADA took place on the 19th March at Warrington .
We were trying out a new venue, having had the last couple of meetings at Stockport College.
The Flexible Meetings Organisation provided us with a purpose built modern air-conditioned centre at Birchwood in Warrington.
The guest speaker was from Hearing Dogs for the Deaf and came with a user and her friend who was lovely. The presentation was very informative and everyone enjoyed it. After a buffet lunch we held our AGM and there were some changes voted in. The new chairman was appointed, John Newton and Kevin Williams stood down as chairman taking over the Secretary’s job.
Bill Allen stood down from the EC after many years dedicated service and we all thanked him wholeheartedly for everything he had done for CICADA over the years.
