Mike has been an active member of the Officer Team for more than twenty years, serving the Association in various capacities. In support of his role to attempt to balance the books each year, he has chaired the Central Fundraising Committee, which is responsible for raising a substantial proportion of our income, and served as Deputy Chairman - Fundraising. He is always on the lookout for ways to increase our income, and to cut our costs.

I first joined the Conservative Party aged 16 as a Young Conservative in Epsom Constituency where I went on to become Divisional Young Conservative Chairman, so I have been a life-long supporter of the Conservative Party.
I joined the Woking Constituency Conservative Association in 2014, at the time to be part of our campaigning team for the 2015 General Election where our team helped secure the Eastleigh seat against strong LibDem opposition and continued to be part of the subsequent General Election campaign teams in 2017 and 2019 also supporting local government campaigns across the Constituency.
In 2018, I was co-opted on to the Association Officers Committee as Membership Officer and along with the added roll of Data Protection Officer I continue to look after Membership today, making sure that we maximise membership renewals and welcome new members. I am also a Blue Ribbon Patron.
