Dale FreemanChief Operating Officer, DPO & DBS Lead Signatory
I am extremely pleased to say that at the beginning of 2017 I was offered the role of Chief Operating Officer, a position I was very proud and pleased to accept. I am now in my 18th year with NODA. Working initially as Membership Services Manager gave me an invaluable insight into the mechanics of this wonderful organisation and, equally importantly, the needs of you, our members. It has been a real privilege for me to attend some the regional conferences as part of my role and meet so many of the wonderful and inspiration people that adorn amateur theatre.

Most recently he has worked in marketing with the UK arm of an agricultural machinery manufacturer (He does say that at times they were more dramatic than theatre people!) He is still heavily involved with his local amateur group both onstage and directing.
