BERNARD

(Herts)

Dimmie Fleming

Award

Bernard joined the Executive

Committee of Hertfordshire in

2002 as Treasurer and EBU

shareholder. In 2008 he was

elected President (Chair) of the

County Association and ensured

the smooth transition to

Universal Membership. He has

pushed for greater accountability

through the publication of

committee decisions, clear

selection criteria for County

representation and the

established meetings with

affiliated clubs and made a point

of visiting them all.

Since 2014 Bernard has been a

trustee of English Bridge

Education and Development

(EBED), helping develop bridge

teaching in schools.

Bernard decided to retire as

President in May 2015 but has

been the driving force making

efficient and relevant to its

members and affiliated clubs.
