Tony Johns has retired from his role as Secretary of the British Marine Electrical and Electronics Association (BMEEA). Over 26 years, Tony has been central to the association, organising its annual conference and providing essential support to members.

British Marine CEO, Lesley Robinson, paid tribute to Tony by commenting: “Tony Johns has given us all the benefit of his experience and made a huge contribution over the past 26 years. In his time as Secretary of BMEEA, Tony has supported ISO and Department of Trade working groups and managed key updates to the BMEEA Code of Practice. In 2010, Tony received the BMEEA Lifetime Achievement Award and in 2013 he received the British Marine Peter Milward Award for his outstanding contribution to associations. I’d like to thank him for his contribution to BMEEA and its members and celebrate Tony’s many achievements. At 87 we all wish Tony all the best in his well-earned retirement”.

Tony has asked us to wish staff and members a very Merry Christmas. He tells us he is intending to use his retirement to further pursue his love of photography. He will also use his time to play church organ, something he does for six local churches for services plus weddings and funerals.

British Marine will update members over future plans for the Secretary role of BMEEA in the new year.
