The annual conference of the Great Britain MTM Association was split between two hotels, firstly Astley Bank Hotel at Darwen, Lancashire, on 1 April, and then at Elstead Hotel, Bournemouth, Hampshire on 3 April 2003. This was done in order to offer delegates a choice of venue that would be nearer to them. Procedures were largely duplicated at both conference sites, with the exception that Gabriele Carangno, Executive Director of the International MTM Directorate, was present only in Darwen--his place at Bournemouth being taken by John Scott. John Scott, Chairman of UK MTM Association, opened proceedings with a welcome to the visiting delegates. His opening address outlined the proceedings for the day and spoke of the success that the newly founded Association has enjoyed since its formation. A new Governing Council had been formed and had been active in the day-to-day running of the Association. A core body of board members is now firmly in place, attending to the requirements of finance, administration, examination procedures and technical matters. And new board members from the existing instructor grade have strengthened the Association's technical and academic representation.
