The Country Landowners Association has chosen Lindy Margach as its

new director of PR and communications, following the departure of Nicky

O’Reilly to the Meat and Livestock Commission (PR Week, 14 November

1997).



As well as acting as a lobbying organisation for its 50,000 land-owning

members, the CLA provides advice in legal, taxation and land management

issues. It also negotiates with public utilities on issues such as pipe

laying.



Landowners have been protesting against the Government’s plans to

protect ramblers’ ’right to roam’ with legislation, and the CLA unveiled

its own voluntary initiative to improve access to the countryside in

January.



Margach, who reports to CLA director general Julian Anderson and

president Ian MacNicol, joins from John Kendall Associates, where she

worked since 1985.



Her remit at the CLA includes all corporate and public affairs

activities.



Margach will oversee the London-based PR manager, press officer, support

staff, and five regional PR officers in England and Wales.



- The Ramblers’ Association, has appointed former communications

director of Amnesty International, Norma Johnston, as its new chief

executive.



Johnston replaces Alan Mattingly, who is retiring after 24 years in the

post.
