GA Chief Executive to stand down

After ten years as Chief Executive of the Geographical Association, David Lambert is standing down.

Since 2007 he has been combining the GA's leadership role with the Professorship of Geography Education at the Institute of Education, London. From August 2012 he will take on a full-time role at the Institute where he will continue to build and supervise research in geography education.

David says: 'This is a good time for a new Chief Executive to help forge the future. The GA is well placed to increase still further its influence and to extend its leadership and support for geography education in this country.

'I have thoroughly enjoyed working with the brilliant staff in Sheffield and extensive and diverse force of volunteers. It will go from strength to strength.'

On behalf of everyone involved with the GA - members, volunteers and staff - we wish David all the best in the future and extend our thanks to him for his inspirational and tireless leadership of the organisation over the past ten years.

I have enjoyed working with David over the past seven years I've been with the National Association for the Teaching of English. All at NATE wish him the best of luck for the future.

David, you have done a fantastic job as Chief Executive and I hope you now have more time to get back to the teaching which you so enjoyed. Both myself and my wife have had the pleasure of being taught by you at Cambridge (Homerton) and the Institute respectively as we trained and you certainly inspired us. I do hope that you may now have time to visit Sutton Grammar School to talk to the students about the subject. Kind Regards, Ray Pletts
