Note from the president

It is an honour to be addressing these words to you as the newly elected president of PEOPIL.
With energy still flowing from the fantastic annual conference we held in Malaga on the 14th to the 16th of October this year, I am grateful for the enormous privilege I have been granted to serve this great organisation.
As you are aware, and as we have had the opportunity to discuss on numerous occasions, the past months have been filled with challenges for PEOPIL. Challenges that we have similarly faced in our professional and personal lives. I can only, therefore, insist on how grateful I am for the work that our Past President, John Beer, and Executive Board have done to keep our organisation at full speed in such difficult times. Their efforts and commitment will certainly facilitate the tasks before me.
