NA prepares new offer after losses

first_imgTraining was on the agenda as the National Association of Master Bakers (NA) held its 120th Annual Conference in Harrogate last weekend.At its AGM, Shirley Ryder, who has been just been appointed chairman, read out a report which had been written by her predecessor Noel Grout in the week before he died (See British Baker, May 4, pg 13).On the issue of training, Ryder said: “The board unanimously decided to close the NA’s training arm, which was due to a £17,500 loss together with another £19,000 loss in the 2005 accounts.”In July 2006 we also gave £13,000 to Improve. There’s no one in the room that could disagree that we couldn’t keep on the in-house training.”Gill Brooks-Lonican, chief executive of the NA, said within “weeks, if not days” it would be confirmed if the training arm of the NA would pass over to Poultec, a training provider specialising in the delivering of training and development solutions for businesses throughout the UK.After the AGM, Chris Dabner, the NA’s health and hygiene officer, gave a presentation on current legislation and Peter Wilbourn spoke about the NA’s Basic Hygiene Certificate. Wilbourn said that the certificate could be taken online and is now available in Polish.The NA also plans to launch the training in Portuguese. It costs £30.26 per candidate and £28.40 for 10 or more.He said: “The certificate can be taken anywhere in the world. All you need is a computer, broadband and speakers. It’s an exciting concept that’s easy and efficient.”Members ended the annual conference with a fun night, dressing up as Disney characters.Mike Holling from Birds of Derby was elected as the 113th president of the NA, taking over from Shirley Ryder at the conference. The NA now has 764 members, down 20 on last year.last_img read more

Elkhart Mayor, Police Chief and community come together to talk civil justice

first_imgIndianaLocalNews Elkhart Mayor, Police Chief and community come together to talk civil justice By Network Indiana – September 18, 2020 3 330 Google+ Pinterest (Photo supplied/Rod Roberson for Mayor) City leaders in Elkhart are discussing ways to move forward in these times of unrest between many communities and police departments across the U.S.Mayor Rod Roberson and Elkhart Police Chief Kris Seymore took part in a panel discussion with local faith leaders and community activists in an effort to work together to solve problems. They worked with community activist Curbiee Coleman, who organized protests against police brutality months ago after the death of George Floyd.“If we don’t talk about the conversation then we can never understand what the community, what their issues are and we can never understand the issues that the police have,” she said. “These conversations are important to have, otherwise I don’t think we could come to an agreement or a solution.”Roberson and Seymore discussed de-escalation training, excessive force reporting, and how to improve relations between the police and the city’s black community. Coleman praised their willingness to make it easier for the public to ask them questions and get meaningful answers to those questions.Roberson and other city leaders did say they are not defunding the police department.
