Ken Aske has retired from the position of Vice President of the Birmingham Anglers Association and from all further involvement with the Association.

The Aske family has a long tradition of involvement with the BAA and Ken himself has participated in one form or another for over 30 years.

Ken’s father served on the BAA Executive Committee up until 1970 and in that same year Ken joined the Executive. Ken always wanted to represent the rank and file of ordinary members, who otherwise would have had no say in how the Association was run. In 1975 Ken became a fully elected member of the Executive committee.

He remained on the committee until 1980 when he left for a short period, returning back in 1989. In 1995, following the retirement of Jack Stubbs, Ken stood for election as Vice President and took his place on the top table in 1996. In 2001 Ken took on the role of BAA Treasurer following the resignation of Tommy Turner.
