Máire Mac Conghail (r) congratulates Joan Sharkey (l) as her successor as President of AGI.

At last week’s Annual General Meeting Máire Mac Conghail completed three years as President of Accredited Genealogists Ireland. In the accompanying photograph she can be seen congratulating her successor, Joan Sharkey (left), as she begins her first term.

The meeting also elected the following officers and other members of Council to serve for the coming year: Nicola Morris was elected to be the new Vice-President; Anne Rodda succeeds Sandra Doble as Hon. Treasurer, whose term of office has ended; and Georgina Scally was re-elected Hon. Secretary.

In addition to the four officers, six ordinary members were also elected: Rob Davison, Paul Gorry, Sandy O’Byrne, Anne-Marie Smith, Steven Smyrl and Michael Walsh.

John Grenham, Sandra Doble and Máire Mac Conghail chose not to stand for re-election and the Association wishes to thank them for their years of service, particularly John and Máire who between them must easily have clocked up 40 years.
