Thank you Barbara for your message. I agree with you wholeheartedly. I've
been a member since 1985. There have been a lot of changes since then, and
yes more are needed, but we must make haste slowly, and take all the members
with us.

At Summer School this year, there was a very interesting presentation from
the current chairman and vice chairman on the subject of a possible future
structure of the society. I think their suggestions are very well worth
exploring, but it will take time to make sure that any changes are the right
way forward.
