Llanelli Rotary Club welcomed a new member at the weekly meeting held at the Stradey Park Hotel, Llanelli.
Cerith Owens was welcomed into membership by Llanelli Rotary Club president Alan Owen.
Mr Owens was proposed into membership by Rotarian Monro Walters.
In his acceptance speech, Mr Owens said that it was a privilege and an honour to be invited to join Llanelli Rotary Club.
Married to Alison with three sons, Cerith lives in Bynea, Llanelli, but his roots are in the Swansea Valley, in Cwmtwrch.
He has a BSc (Hons) Degree in Geology and an MSc in Applied Environmental Geology.
He has worked as a Geotechnical Engineer for more than 25 years and has been involved in major projects throughout South Wales.
Mr Owens currently works for Jacobs Consultancy (American Co) in Llandarcy.
His charity work spans 25 years and his concert themes are mainly classical or choral. He is keen for his concerts not only to raise funds but also awareness.
In 25 years, he has organised 35 charity concerts in theatres,chapels, concert halls and cathedrals.
He has also held concerts in Theatr Elli, Llanelli, and the Brangwyn Hall, Swansea.
Mr Owens has used his concert promotion work to supported many charities, including Tourette's Action and the Teenage Cancer Trust.
He was heavily involved in fund-raising for the 2000 Llanelli National Eisteddfod and also organised the 1911 Llanelli Railway Strike Gala concert at Theatr Elli.
Last year, he started his own production company called Loud Applause Productions and this company is also focussed on helping charities.
Loud Applause has a few concerts coming up, including a Poppy Appeal fund-raiser for the Royal British Legion in October and, in the new year, concerts for Ty Bryngwyn Hospice and Ty Hafan Children's Hospice.
