Dr. Terry Riley OBE gives his final announcement to all BDA members, Staff, the Board and friends, as Chair of the British Deaf Association
The British Deaf Association’s 2018 Staff Presentation and Annual General Meeting was held in Manchester on Saturday 14th April. Together we paid tribute to our resolute members of the community and took a look back at the BDA’s progress over the past year.
As we remember this remarkable and warm lady where her talents seemed endless – Dot Miles was widely regarded as the pioneer of BSL poetry, she was not only a poet, she was a playwright, performer, scholar, teacher and passionate activist.
On behalf of everyone at the BDA and the Deaf community, we thank you, Dr Terry Riley OBE, for your tireless commitment as a staunch supporter, a steadfast campaigner and a true trailblazer for sign language rights over the years
The BDA BOT have accepted the nomination panels decision that Agnes Dyab has met the relevant criteria for the Chair. As a result of this, there will be no Chair election and AGNES DYAB is duly elected as the new incoming Chair 2018-2021
We would like to extend an invitation to join us at the Annual General Meeting for the British Deaf Association in Manchester on Saturday 14th April 2018.
