Statement by Chairperson
"I have been honored to be elected as the Chairperson of the STTA. Your vote will enable me on your behalf to continue to carry out the work of the STTA that best serves the membership. I thank all of the membership that voted".
M Arif Statement
I have been honoured to be the longest serving chair of the STTA. At the time of my appointment in 2001 the STTA was going through a very bad patch in time, with the deregulation of the Hackneys in Sheffield. Relations with the council were at an all time low but over the years a working relationship has been established.
I have enjoyed my time working for the STTA, I had a very good support network around me which included members of the management committee and the officer of the STTA. I would like to say special thanks to one particular officer of the STTA Hafeas Rehman (secretary) who helped me and supported me all the time.
