Message from Steve Bond as he Takes Up New Role
December 17, 2018
Those of you who attended this years Annual Delegate Conference will be aware that I will be leaving the NCA in January and will be taking up a post with the NCOA as the National Officer.
It would be fair to say, the last 2 years have been personally stimulating and frustrating in equal measure. Whilst some of our Members received substantial pay increases, others yet again, did not receive any meaningful pay rise. As National Officer, I will continue to work alongside your National Executive Committee, General Secretary and President in making the case that the work of NCOA members is appropriately recognised by NCA Board and HM Treasury, as well as seeking to grow the NCOA.
I have been immensely proud of being NCOA Chair. I have tried to use the opportunity of being the representative of 2400 officers to hold the NCA to account on the impact of their decision making, during a time of significant change.
Last week your NEC confirmed the appointment of Nick Edwards as the next Chair of the NCOA. He will taking up this role with immediate effect. Having worked with Nick for a number of years, I know he will take up the challenge of this new role with the enthusiasm he has shown to all his representative duties. I look forward to working alongside him in protecting the terms and conditions of our members.
Please accept my personal thanks for your continued support.
National Officer, NCOA
