The main focus of the third and final day of the Annual Conference was the installation of the newly elected National President, national vice president and national deputy vice president.
The retiring national president, Stuart Reddish, handed over the chains of office to Narinder Randhawa before Jason Birks was officially made vice president and Shahid Razzaq was installed as deputy vice president.
The immediate past national vice president, Muntazir Dipoti gave an emotional speech following his narrow defeat in the election for the new National President.
Stuart Reddish also announced the names of two people to be added to the Roll of Honour – longstanding NEC member and former National President Peter Wagg, and the NFRN’s longest serving member of staff, Stephen Burridge.
Thanks were also given to Peter and fellow NEC members Suleman Khonat and Mike Mitchelson who are all stepping down from the committee after many years of service.
Earlier in the day, delegates heard and saw presentations from the membership services and political engagement departments, as well as from partner organisations Red Bull and Nisa.
Neil Jagger, chairman of Newtrade Media, also informed members of the success of its publications, particularly RN, and explained how the NFRN, as the sole shareholder in Newtrade, benefitted from all the profits made by the company.
As is the tradition at the Annual Conference, Mr Jagger also presented the outgoing National President Stuart Reddish with a bound copy of back issues of the RN.
