Jewellery designer and Mona Pink founder, Monika Kamycka, has been appointed as chair of The British Society of Enamellers’ at the trade organisation’s AGM, following her “successful” year as vice-chair.
According to the organisation, under Kamycka’s leadership the trade organisation has “realised a number of notable achievements”, including an innovative and successful online exhibition, a full review of membership benefits and evaluation of website and social media platforms with renewed focus on member and follower engagement.
The cumulative result of these activities has also driven significant increases in the Society’s membership in comparison to previous years, and the committee reported “substantial cost savings” realised through rationalisation of digital software and tools.
Kamycka said: “It has been a really busy and eventful 12 months and we have another full year ahead. I am so pleased and proud of my committee and the improvements that we have collectively driven through this organisation.
“We celebrate our 35th anniversary this year and we kicked off our celebrations with a champagne reception at IJL in 2018. I want to make sure that we are toasting both our heritage and more successes in 2019.”
She added: “So, my focus as chair will now be on embedding our new mission and values, fully reviewing our governance, improving our digital interface with members and the public, and creating an operational strategy that will set the direction of travel for us all over the next four to five years.”
