ALA Fellows Dinner 2018

Thursday 22 November 2018

The Association will be holding its Fellows Dinner and Keynote Address on Thursday, 22 November 2018 at The Queens Hotel, Leeds.

The Dinner will follow the Autumn Conference which provides 5 hours of formal CPD.

The Fellows Key Note Address will follow a drinks reception at 6pm with Dinner at 7pm.

We are delighted that our Keynote Speaker this year is Mark Bridgeman, Deputy President of the CLA.

For the last 12 years, Mark has managed the Fallodon Estate in Northumberland. It consists of an in-hand farm, let farms, woodland and biomass, tourism, let properties and housing development. After Durham University, Mark spent 19 years at Schroders as a fund manager. He is now on the board of three London listed investment trusts and a venture capital fund in Newcastle. He is trustee of the Weston Park Foundation and two other North East charities.

Mark has been actively involved in the CLA for 12 years. He joined the CLA Policy Committee seven years ago as the North East’s representative and chaired the Legal and Parliamentary and Property Rights Committee from 2011-13, during which time he also chaired the Housing Working Group that produced the CLA’s housing policy document.

From 2013-15 Mark chaired the Environment Committee and from 2015-2017 he chaired the National Policy Committee and is now Chairman of the CLA Board.

We hope as many Fellows as possible are able to join us.
