    IAPS - BULLETIN 39 | AUTUMN 2013


  • Presidential address,by Eddie Edgerton

    It was a great honour and privilege to be nominated by the Board as the new President of IAPS and I hope I can repay their confidence and support. It does not seem that long ago that I attended my first IAPS conference (Paris 2000) and I remember vividly when David Uzzell asked me at the EPUK conference in 2005 if I would consider standing for the forthcoming Board elections. I think it speaks volumes for IAPS that members have the opportunity to become so actively involved in the management and decision making of the organisation in a relatively short period of time. My decision to accept the role of IAPS President was influenced by a number of factors, one of which was my knowledge of the abilities, enthusiasm and dedication of the Board members that I have wor ked with over the last 6-7 years. I am sure that the work of the Board can only be enhanced further with the involvement of our new members that we welcomed on to Board in 2012: Ricardo Garcia Mira, Tony Craig and Claudia Andrade. The addition of these three new Board members along with the expertise of the nine existing Board members will allow for continuity as well as the ability to take forward key activities and initiatives. The new Board has agreed to work under the following groupings: Management (Ricardo, Tony, Aleya and myself), Published Outputs (Giuseppe, Clare, Claudia and Ian), Networks (Kevin and Ian), and Congress Related Activities (Corina, Sigrun, Petra and Claudia). One further factor that influenced my decision to accept the role of IAPS President was the experience that I have gained from the past-Presidents that I have worked with namely, David Uzzell, Gabriel Moser and Ombretta Romice. Each of these individuals has made a unique and significant contribution to IAPS and it has been honour to have worked and (hopefully) learned from them. Whilst Gabriel was greatly missed at the Glasgow conference this summer it was a great pleasure and a very moving experience to welcome his wife Dirce and his son Gregoire to the memorial lecture that David Uzzell delivered. Due to the length of time that I have spent on

    the IAPS Board, my mandate as President will only last until the Timisoara conference in 2014. Having said this, I am confident that during this period, the Board can continue to develop and expand on the many, many initiatives that were achieved under Ombrettas Presidency; her drive, commitment and passion for IAPS was inspirational and will be a very difficult act to follow. On a personal note, I would also like to say a big thank you to my co-organisers of IAPS22, Kevin and Ombretta. Whilst the organisation of the conference dominated our lives for the last year or so, it was ultimately a rewarding experience and we were delighted to meet up again with so many old friends and welcome many new people to IAPS. We hope that you will all join us again in A Corua (2103) and Timisoara (2014). Now that the dust has settled from the Glasgow conference, I would like to remind our members of some of the plans and developments that the Board is keen to take forward. As agreed at the 2012 AGM, we will shortly be moving to electronic versions of the bulletin; this will be more in keeping with the environmental ethos of IAPS and will allow us to produce a more interactive version of the bulletin and allow us to make savings that can then be directed to other initiatives. From March 2013, we will be moving to the new 2 year membership for all members and this will allow us to have a more efficient membership management process. Having already launched our new website, we are keen to expand and enhance this, particularly in relation to the networks. Finally, we hope to develop links with other relevant organisat
