Although I'm no longer directly involved in BEnA, I'm glad that I've played a part in the setting up of BEnA. I was involved in drafting the Rules of the Association, getting BEnA approved and registered with the Registrar of Societies, convene the meetings of the Pro-Tem Committee and the formal launching of BEnA.
