New national chairman
Paul Rodgers has been elected as national chairman of The Inland Waterways Association.
He succeeds outgoing national chairman, Ivor Caplan who, after two years at the helm, has decided to focus on areas of particular interest including heritage, navigation and planning.
Paul is chairman and founder of European payments community, Vendorcom and has a background in marketing, strategy development and community building.
He first volunteered for IWA in 2014, when his wife persuaded him to go on week long canal camp with her and since then his involvement has grown.
“My aim as national chairman is to continue to build on IWA’s reputation, developing well-thought-out, strategic and active campaigns which will result in the regeneration of the waterways to benefit all users, influencers and stakeholders for the remainder of the 21st century – and beyond,” he said.
