The Mothers’ Union has just announced their future Worldwide President for the new triennium. Mothers’ Union leaders from around the world have voted for Mrs Sheran Harper, who comes from Guyana. She will represent and lead the 142-year-old movement for the next three years. Mrs Harper will lead around four million members in 84 countries.
Mrs Harper will take up her new position in January 2019 and says that she is delighted to accept her new role and feels very excited and privileged to serve and extends her gratitude to all the members who voted for her.
These elections were undertaken under the revised Constitution, approved by the Privy Council in April 2018, designed to ensure that the governance meets the latest standards required, and that the Board truly reflects the global nature of the movement. Also, 11 Trustees have been elected from 11 areas worldwide, five from the Provinces in Britain and Ireland and six from outside. The board will also be able to appoint four trustees with certain skills to compliment the experience and expertise of the elected members.
Mothers’ Union’s Chief Executive, Bev Jullien says that the results of the vote are very exciting and will bring a rich diversity to the Board, plus it’s the first time a man is included. Our current Worldwide President, Mrs Lynne Temby will continue in her post until the end of December 2018. She prays that the Lord will continue to guide members and leaders everywhere and especially. Sheran and the new Worldwide Board and they take up their new posts for the coming three years. They will be leading an organisation that is making a difference in the lives of over three quarters of a million people worldwide.
