ackie Parker to take over as CAMRA national chairman

Jackie Parker is to take over as national chairman of the Campaign for Real Ale (CAMRA) next year after incumbent Colin Valentine announced he would not stand for re-election after eight years in the role.

Valentine will continue as chairman until CAMRA’s Members’ Weekend, AGM and Conference in April. Current vice-chairman Parker was elected by her colleagues at a National Executive meeting.

She said: “My vision for CAMRA is to ensure we remain as relevant to our active volunteers, members, possible new members, and those people visiting pubs and clubs as possible, and that we continue to achieve our goals of campaigning for real ale, cider and perry drinkers across the UK.” Valentine added: “By April we will have concluded the Revitalisation Project, the largest consultation into and review of CAMRA’s purpose we have ever conducted. Hopefully members will vote to approve the National Executive’s recommendations, which would be the perfect time for me to step down and let Jackie lead the implementation of the changes.”
