New Chairman and Committee Reshuffle for SEDA
The South Eastern Discotheque Association (SEDA) has announced committee changes and the appointment of its new chairman, following the recent SEDA ShowNight and AGM at the Britannia Theatre, Chatham.
After three years at the head of SEDA, Brian Mole stepped down as Chairman, being replaced by Ian Forest. Honorary Secretary Ian Barber also stepped down, passing on his duties to Gavin Vaclavik. The new appointments will be working alongside existing committee members Glenn Nash (Vice Chairman), Keith Hutchins (Honorary Treasurer), Caroline Robinson (Membership Secretary) and Andy Robinson (ShowNight and Events Coordinator).
SEDA – the UK’s longest-running association for mobile DJs – recently celebrated its 40th anniversary and is confident that the new changes will take the association forward. Alongside the rest of the committee, Ian Forest outlined his future plans to increase SEDA's profile, not only within the industry but in the public too. He also thanked Brian and Ian for all their hard work.
Speaking on the committee changes, Eddie Short, Editor of Pro Mobile magazine, had this to say:
“I think Brian has done a great job during his time as SEDA Chairman; he has a true passion for the art of DJing and this has always been evident throughout the last three years as he has headed up the association. I congratulate Brian on a job well done and wish him all the best for the future.”
“New chairman, Ian Forest, will be familiar to many Pro Mobile readers, as he has been a regular contributor to the magazine for a number of years,” added Eddie. “I’m sure that SEDA is in safe hands with Ian as Chairman and that he will further the good work done during Brian’s time at the helm.”
SEDA continues to hold its regular ShowNight meetings in the South East. These take place every other month and consistently attract over 100 attendees. The next SEDA ShowNight will take place on Sunday the 17th of May.
