I am very pleased to announce the new RTS board. Michael Clancy has rotated off the board and Elizabeth Vidon will be taking his place on the Secretary and Treasurer team with Piotr Niewiadomski. Steven Ericson has joined the communications team, and considering the increasing significance of social media having three people on this team to keep us up to date and in touch makes sense. Jarkko Saarinen, with connections to the RGS-IBG, is helping to further broaden our international reach as part of the international liaisons team. And, of course, I have now taken over as Chair from Patrick Brouder. Thanks to all for their service the past couple of years!
We are still in need of a student representative, however. Please send me information for nominations for this role.
