Committee profiles – Treasurer – Nick Burchnall

Nick Burchnall – Treasurer

I joined Quest at the beginning of 2004 and attended my first conference, Liverpool, in 2005. In 2009 I took on the role of Conference Organiser, researching potential venues, taking bookings, preparing delegates’ information packs, ensuring the smooth running of the weekend and reporting to the committee on future and past events.

In 2014 I decided it was time for a change and took on the role of Membership Secretary whilst preparing to hand over the Conference job to my successors. This I did, completing my 7th conference as organiser in Derbyshire in 2015.

I moved to West Yorkshire from Surrey in 2013 after leaving my actuarial career. I had been working at the European HQ of a US based insurer. I live here on the edge of the moors with my husband Gez, currently Quest in the North’s convenor. We married in September 2019. I enjoy off-road running and walking and have a particular interest in butterflies. We have a large garden which we are slowly trying to tame.
