She was appointed following the institute’s annual general meeting today. Bell qualified with the AAT in the 1980s, becoming one of the first people to complete the institute’s qualifications.

Speaking on her appointment, she said: ‘Learning should not end when you leave formal study; ethics training and continuing professional development are key areas for the AAT and its members. I hope to encourage AAT members to recognise the importance of keeping their skills and knowledge up-to-date throughout their career.’

Jess Bond was named as the AAT’s vice-president.
