Welcome to the new IRSV President

The Executive Committee of the IRSV would like to welcome Victoria Lambropoulos as the new President of the Society.

Prof. Greg Bamber on 1 May 2014 vacated the President's chair as he will be taking up a well deserved sabbatical that will see him overseas for much of the remainder of his term as President.

At the Executive Committee meeting on 1 May 2014 the Executive Committee sought to fill the casual vacancy that Greg's travel's would create.
