Commiserations to the other candidates, Teddy Coward and Lars Mucklejohn, and thanks to all three for putting themselves forward and running fantastic campaigns.
Chay was previously Conference and Events Officer of the SPA and editor of York Vision. He is now an NCTJ-qualified journalist working for DMG media.

Chay said: “I’m delighted to be back with the SPA at such an exciting time and can’t wait to get going just weeks before the start of term.”
His election means the SPA now has a full Executive team – and therefore recruitment for Project and Regional Officers will resume. Further details are available here.
