"The Board of the BAC are sad to announce the retirement of Karen Pickering MBE as our Chairperson with immediate effect due to personal reasons.
Karen joined the Board in 2004 and throughout has always been committed to athlete representation in performance sport - always seeing the BAC as the organisation to do that. Her commitment to the BAC was illustrated by the fact that although she was due to retire from the role earlier this year she continued in the role in an attempt to help us find a replacement.
We very much thank her for her time with the BAC and wish her every success in the future.
Anna Watkins MBE will step up to the role of interim Chair until a permanent replacement has been found.
