Midlands Branch

Midlands Branch

The Midlands Branch region is Herefordshire, Shropshire, Staffordshire, Warwickshire and Worcestershire.

The new chair of the Midlands Branch is Gareth Roberts, Managing Editor (BBC WM 95.6).

Gareth is looking for new volunteers to help organise social events in the region. We need people from all areas of the industry, who can spare an hour or so once a month to meet/conference call and plan a diary of activities. We're looking for people with ideas and a little time to turn those ideas into events. This means having contacts across the industry and the willingness to exert a little friendly pressure to persuade people to take to the stage.

If that sounds like you, drop Gareth an email and he'll be in touch.
