Current WEA Deputy President, Lynne Smith, is set to become President of the Association following an all member vote. WEA Ambassador, Paul Simpson, was the other candidate in the election.
Lynne will take over the presedency after Colin Barnes completes his final term as President at WEA Conference 16.
The post of Deputy President was not contested. Standing Orders Committee has therfore confirmed that Lindsay Pearson is duly elected to the post of Deputy President.
Ruth Spellman, Chief Executive and General Secretary commented: "I am sure that members, staff, volunteers and supporters of the WEA will join with me in congratulating Lynne Smith on her election as President of the WEA.
"Everyone who knows Lynne will also know what a staunch advocate she is for the WEA and for lifelong learning. We are all looking forward to her Presidency.
"I would like to also thank Paul Simpson for participating in the election and giving our members a chance to vote. I was delighted to see so many members engaged and enthused by the election process.
"At Conference, I also look forward to having the opportunity to thank Colin Barnes for his dedication to the WEA over his past two terms as President. His legacy will be a stronger WEA that is delivering more for our students, and I look forward to celebrating his contribution to the Association in March."
