Sir David John KCMG

It is with great regret that we have to announce the death of the RSAA’s former Chairman, Sir David John on 27 October.

Sir David became Chairman of the RSAA on 1 January 2009 and held that office until the end of 2016, steering the Society through some precarious times and laying the basis for a more secure future.  Although his health had declined sharply over the last eighteen months, Sir David took a keen interest in the welfare of the RSAA long after he stood down as Chairman.  We have much reason to be grateful for his service to the Society.

Our condolences go to his family.  A fuller notice will be published in due course.
