Rachel Pendered, chairperson of EVCOM, has resigned from the post because of family commitments.
Jenny Jenkins, CEO of EVCOM, whose contract was due to run out at the end of March, will now remain in post until after the annual general meeting (AGM) in July.
Pendered became chair in July 2018 and has overseen the creation of a new strategy for the association.
"It’s so sad Rachel has had to stand down," said Jenkins. "However, we understand her family comes first. Rachel worked so hard in introducing new ideas and member benefits. We thank her for all her hard work and wish her well."

Nominations for the new board open in May and will be voted on at the AGM.
EVCOM has also revealed its new events programme for the rest of the year. It includes a new format for its annual awards to recognise the industry’s top performers and a re-launch of the Clarions, which celebrate the very best in corporate social responsibility.
