President - Jem Rowland

Jem is a native of Swansea and began his caving in Gower. He first caved with SWCC in 1963 and became a member in 1966, just after the discovery of Dan yr Ogof II and just before the discovery of Ogof Ffynnon Ddu II. He has caved in various places but has always preferred SWCC and the caves of the Swansea Valley! 

He has held various SWCC committee positions, including Chairman and Secretary, and is a past Chairman of BCRA. He was closely involved in establishing the OFD National Nature Reserve, at a time when OFD II was threatened by quarrying, and subsequently was secretary of the OFD Cave Management Committee for a number of years. 

A fairly serious photographer, Jem is a Fellow of the Royal Photographic Society, awarded for his cave photography. He is very proud to have been elected President of SWCC and hopes to make a good job of it!
