AGM 2016 Button
This autumn note ushers in a lot of good news. First, I would like to congratulate our outgoing President, Professor Graham Bell, on his nomination to the Royal Society of London, a remarkable honour offered to very few foreign nationals. In addition, our first two female Presidents of the RSC, Patricia Demers and Yolande Grise, were both appointed to the Order of Canada, a well-deserved honour. I must also above all offer my sincerest congratulations to our newly elected President-Elect, Professor Chad Gaffield.  Read the Message from the President.
