Roger Treglown appointed as ABA President


Book dealer Roger Treglown is the new president of the ABA. Treglown who operates from an office in Macclesfield has said his main focus as president will be to remind the association that it is "here to help members sell books to put food on the table. We musn't lose sight of that. I think it is also very important to remember to put something back into the trade. Many people just take but I am trying to put something back." 

Starting his book trade career int 1980 Hale, Treglown first joined the ABA in 1989 and was appointed to council in 2000. "Despite all the things that have happened [his personal difficulties included a family tragedy and surviving a brain haemorrhage], I know it is important, in life and in business, to have goals and aspirations. Nearly 20 years after joining the ABA council I have become president." He said he was "very honoured to take on the role" previously held by Angus O'neill of Omega Books in London. 

The position of president is traditionally held for two years.
