The Master, Wing Commander Graeme Morgan announced the appointment of Mrs Madeleine Bidder as Chair of the Awards Committee as and from 27 April 2017.  He welcomed Madeleine to the post stating that it was one of the most important posts in the Company being responsible for the delivery of the awards programme each year.

The outgoing Chair, the Junior Warden, Mr Geoff Hughes proposed Madeleine and wished her well in this demanding role as he stood down to undertake his new role as an Officer of the Company.  

“The appointment of CA Madeleine Bidder as the new chairman of the Awards Committee was agreed by Court on 27 April 2017. The Committee has a budget of approximately £38,000 for 2017-2018 for awards and bursaries throughout Wales.  Over 80 awards will be made ranging from the prestigeous Gold Award, travel scholarships, school awards and awards to the armed forces and others.

Madeleine stated "the committee members of the Awards Committee are assigned specific awards and make arrangements for interviews and select successful applicants. There is also a successful schools programme for awards to sixth formers in twelve schools. The committee as a whole decides on the successful recipients of “ad hoc” awards. All this takes place under the careful guidance of the committee secretary - the current Master.

Madeleine, a Court Assistant of the Company hopes to continue the excellent work of her predecessors as Chairmen of the committee and hopes that as  many liverymen as possible will come to the Awards Evening on 23 September 2017 at Cardiff Metropolitan University where recipients of some of the Company’s awards will be present to demonstrate how their awards were of benefit to them”.
