The Federation wishes to publicly welcome Ian Edmunds to the role of Legislation Manager with immediate effect. Many from the historic vehicle community will already know Ian from his work on DVLA matters in his role as DVLA Liaison Manager for the FBHVC.
The change follows the resignation of Mr Dave Daniel earlier this week. Dave Daniel had served the Federation for a relatively short time, but his resignation was for personal, close family reasons. All at the FBHVC send our best wishes to him and his family and thank him for his work for the Federation during his tenure.
In these challenging times, continuity of leadership is obviously critical and the board of directors is pleased that Ian Edmunds, an existing, long term legislation committee member has volunteered as Acting Chairman for a period of up to twelve months. Ian will also continue his role as DVLA Liaison Manager, itself a challenging task as our contacts within the Vehicle Policy team in Swansea have changed completely in the last few weeks.
Ian’s interests embrace a diverse collection of historic vehicles including a 1927 Alvis 12/50, two Brough Superiors and two Honda motorcycles, one being Ian’s current project a 1966 CB450 K0.
Commenting on the news, Federation Chairman, David Whale said “Ian has the unanimous support of the board in stepping up to this challenge. To further reinforce the team at this difficult time, former Legislation Director, Bob Owen, has offered to also return as a member of the legislation committee.”
The recruitment process for a new Legislation Director will commence shortly.
