TOGS President Update
A message from the outgoing President and an offer to TBGS medics.
Out with the old and in with the new… TOGS has a new President.
At the recent AGM David Roberts was proposed as the next President of TOGS and approved unanimously. From the same vintage as myself David went through Britannia Royal Naval College to pursue his career in the Royal Navy.
He has supported TOGS over many years and as an active local personality was happy to take on the role of President for the next two years. I know he will be an excellent hands-on figurehead and I hope you will give him the generous support that I have received from the school and members of TOGS.
I am stepping from one presidency into another, namely that of the Torquay and District Medical Society. I would like to offer any medical student from Torquay Boys Grammar School associate membership of the society which is free of membership fees until they qualify.
The society meets up monthly during the winter months and currently we have a series of medical and surgical lectures given by leaders in their field. It is a chance to network with other medics early in your career and those contacts could be useful in the future.
If you are interested just contact me on email@example.com and we will send you the programme for 2016-7.
I wish David Roberts well in his new role and I thank the committee of TOGS the opportunity given to contribute to the school which gave me that extra stimulus into adult life many years ago.
