Review of League Against Cruel Sports' Honorary Positions
Posted 25th November 2015
We are currently undergoing a review of our Honorary Positions, which includes our President and Vice Presidents. This is standard practice to ensure all our appointments are fair and accountable. It comes at a time when we are also able to announce the appointment of our new Chief Executive, Eduardo Gonçalves – please read more about Eduardo .
As part of this review it has been decided that John Cooper QC will no longer be the League’s President. From now on, each President will be appointed for a period of three years, an issue that was discussed prior to John Cooper’s appointment back in 2011. John has now served four and a half years so he leaves us with our immense gratitude!
John has a long history with the League, and was instrumental in our campaign to ban fox hunting, leading to the Hunting Act of 2004 – which became law 11 years ago today. He remains a Life Member of the charity, and we look forward to seeing him at future League events.
Discussions are taking place as to who will replace John, but as yet no-one has been approached.
