This month’s Private Client Section Annual Conference was the best attended to date and the September edition of PS magazine will give you in-depth coverage of topics and highlights from our insightful speakers including Alan Eccles, Chris Whitehouse and Lesley King.

The annual general meeting, held at the conference, saw new members join the committee and current members secure re-election, plus some of our stalwart members ending their tenure. We would like to welcome our three new members – Iain Cameron, Melinda Giles and Sarah Murphy – and thank our re-elected members – Jan Atkinson, Helen Clarke, Alberto Perez Cedillo, and our re-elected chair Simon Leney. Special thanks must go to our departing members – Greg Baker, Patricia Wass, Margaret Adams, Jonathan Dorman and co-opted member Richard Smithies – for their huge contribution to the Section’s work.
