Betty writes:

I have now completed my first year as chairman and it has been a busy and interesting time. We have an excellent committee and an active and supportive membership, all of which help to create a vibrant and successful society. I hope to continue to build on that so that we continue to go from strength to strength and provide the membership with an excit
ing programme of lectures, events and volunteering activities. 

There are many aspects of the National Association of Decorative and Fine Arts (NADFAS), namely art education, including the promotion of art opportunities for young people,social, church recording and conservation. The educative role of our society is well served by excellent lecture programmes and special interest days, all of which are very well attended. The guided tours, both in the UK and overseas, enhance the educative role and also provide opportunities for members to travel and socialise. It is on these tours, the day visits, special interest days and at the various social functions that members are able to interact in smaller groups and really get to know one another.

Church recording and conservation work are the other arms of NADFAS and ExeDFAS is now successfully involved in both of these activities. Conservation work is an area which I hope to develop further as it is a key role of NADFAS and would enable us to play our part more fully in helping to preserve the cultural heritage of our nation.
