Bernews: BNT Elect Mark Orchard & Michael Leverock

The Bermuda National Trust elected Mark Orchard as president and Michael Leverock as vice president at their Annual General Meeting.

A spokesperson said, “Alana Anderson stepped down from the role of president, in accordance with BNT bye-laws, after serving an extended seven-year term. On behalf of the Council, Mark Orchard thanked Alana for her exceptional service and presented her with Honorary Life Membership.

“Alana has given 20 years of service to the Trust. She started volunteering in 2004 in her early 20’s, first on the Fundraising and Finance Committees and from 2008 on the Council. Important milestones under her leadership included the 2018 International Conference of National Trusts held in Bermuda, amendments to the Bermuda National Trust Actin 2021, and in 2023 the adoption of the new BNT 5-year strategic plan.

“Re-elected to the BNT Council are Andy DeGregorio, Stratton Hatfield, Peter Hebberd, Zeudi Hinds, Robin Mayor, Linda O’Shea, Duncan Simons and William White. There are also three Government appointees on the Council: Meredith Ebbin and Mariette Savoie were previously appointed and continue to serve, while Alana Anderson was appointed recently after stepping down as president.”

“The Council members do a great service to Bermuda by volunteering their time and expertise to ensure that BNT is well governed and effective in protecting and promoting the island’s natural and cultural heritage,” said the Trust’s executive director Karen Border. “We are very grateful to all of them.”
