The BLCS will be under slightly new management. After four years at the helm of the BLCS, Georg Mehl is handing over to Nigel Mottram. Georg’s calm and organized way has made sure that the BLCS has stayed one of the important scientific research societies in the UK. We would like to express our gratitude to Georg. He may have now some time off, but we are sure that we can lure him back onto the BLCS committee.
Nigel, the new kid on the block (not really) has grown up in the BLCS. We, the elders, have seen him developing from an eager PhD to a successful researcher. It will be a pleasure to see what new ideas he will bring to our society. Let’s hope that we all meet each other in person in Aberdeen next year and can celebrate Georg and Nigel with a glass of champagne.
