The Association continues to enjoy health support from its member with all 2014 shows benching numbers around the mark of 2013. Our membership continues to hold up. Both these facts against a hobby that has struggled over recent years. Our finances must be the envy of most avian societies in the country. We have recently seen the retirement of our long standing treasurer Alec Woan. Alec has held the post of treasurer for a good number of years and has guided us through some turbulent times and hand over to our new treasurer Rachel Terheege with the Association in good health. I am sure members will join us in thanking Alec for his many years of hard work and also wish Rachel our full support for the coming year. Alec intends to continue on the committee and his wealth of knowledge will always be an asset. Also leaving the committee due to ill health is John Gosling and we thank John for his support over the years. Joining the committee is Brian Moule and we welcome him and look forward to any ideas he may bring.

We have tried to move with the times and now have an active presents on Facebook which is attracting a great deal of interest in the Association. We are looking forward to an active and entertaining 2015 and hope to see you all at our shows during the season. We also welcome our 2015 President Alan Blakeman, Alan is a well-known figure around the Midland and is one of those “behind the sťance people” and can normally be found in the kitchen at all our events. He was awarded the Gold medal by the NCA in 2014 for his years of continuous service to the hobby in the Midland and it is well deserved that he is the MBA president for 2015.
