Following [email protected]‘s virtual AGM this week, the trade association has announced the election of a new committee to lead its members out of lockdown.
Madeleine Evans of Tivoli Services has accepted the role of chair for the third year. Madeleine says: “I am pleased to accept the role of chair again and am eager to support members in whatever new directions COVID-19’s aftermath takes us. We have an exciting year ahead looking at new ways of working together with clients and celebrating the 20-year anniversary of the association.
“We really want to promote the benefits of plants to businesses. We will get off to a good start with a virtual National Plants at Work Week in July.”
To support Madeleine, Kenneth Freeman – currently Ambius‘s head of innovation – takes on the role of deputy chair. David Snell, owner of Nature at Work Ltd, will become the new membership secretary and Ruscha Mars, owner of The Good Plant Company, retains her role as social secretary jointly with Craig Edser, general manager at Indoor Garden Design. They will be supported by one of [email protected]’s ambassadors, Ian Drummond , creative director at Indoor Garden Design.
[email protected] starts its new year with a virtual programme commencing with naming the Favourite Office Plant 2020 followed by National Plants at Work Week on 13 July when the promotion of plants in the workplace wherever it is and their benefits will be emphasised.
