The inaugural board meeting of the newly-formed War Poets Association was held in Bristol, England last night (30 March).

At this meetng Dr Paul O'Prey, Vice-President Europe of the Robert Graves Society, Director of Academic Affairs at the University of Bristol and Rector-designate of Roehampton, University of Surrey, was appointed the first Chairman of the new Association, which is registered in England as a company and is applying to register there as a charity.

The meeting, held at Goldney Hall at the University of Bristol, was also attended by the three other founding members of the company's board: Helen McPhail, David Worthington and Patrick Villa, who was appointed Treasurer.
