Harris for President

Newbury District Council's director of legal and administrative services, Mike Harris, has been elected as the new president of the Association of District Secretaries.

In his election speech to the association's annual conference last month Harris said he hoped to continue the progress made by his predecessors who had raised the profile of district secretaries.

During his year in office, Harris will also work on finalising plans for the association to merge with the Society of County Secretaries.
