I will be taking over the reins of HDNUG from David as he moves on to greener pastures, I’m sure I speak for everyone when I thank David for his efforts with HDNUG and wish him all the best for his future endeavours, he has certainly kept us all well informed with a great variety of speakers and topics during his time at the helm.

If anyone has any suggestions for future topics or would like to present at any of the coming evenings then please contact me.
