Sheila Mechan’s employment as General Secretary of the association was terminated on Monday 28 April.
This follows her formal suspension on April 19th, less than two weeks after taking up her position on April 7th.
There had been an immediate breakdown in a significant number of crucial working relationships. It was therefore decided to move quickly to resolve the situation.
Alan McKenzie, will again fulfil the role as Acting General Secretary on an interim basis, whilst the recruitment of a new, permanent General Secretary is undertaken.
