David Stroud – Chairman

I am very proud to have been elected as Chair of this great organisation.  If you check our ‘History’ page on this site, you will see that we have been running for many years with some great people in the Chair.

Our intent is two-fold.  To network with like-minded people in our industry and, secondly and most importantly, to raise money for a worthwhile cause whilst we are doing so.  I have chosen Alzheimer’s Society as this year’s charity.  I do not doubt that we all have someone that we know that is living with some form of dementia – whether it be a family member, a friend, or an old work colleague.  My own mother is living with vascular dementia, so I have seen first-hand the effect it has on the supporting family members and friends, re-living a moment or a short conversation over and again.  Dementia is progressive, meaning signs and symptoms may be relatively mild at first, but they get worse with time.  It knows no boundaries.

The Alzheimer’s society works perpetually to raise awareness and indeed raise funds to support those living with dementia.  There is currently no cure for dementia. However, with the right care and support, it is possible for someone to live as well as possible for as long as possible.

Alzheimer’s Society has funded dementia research for over 30 years and has played a key role in some of the biggest breakthroughs.

However, research can only go so far without your help. Our organisation would be so grateful if you could support our events as much as possible. If you wish to learn more, please visit www.alzheimers.org.uk

I thank you in advance for your support and special thanks to the committee that give up so much of their personal time to allow UKACC to be successful in its endeavours.

Looking forward to seeing you at our events.

Kind regards David
