Here is my final message as President of the Royal Society of Canada. Before passing the torch to the President-Elect, Chad Gaffield, in November, I thought it would be appropriate to provide a short summary of these two years of my presidency.
The start of my mandate was marked by some internal turbulence. After our Executive Director left a year before my official arrival, we had to recruit someone new who only stayed with us for a few months. Fortunately, Darren Gilmour's return to the National Secretariat helped stabilize the personnel and together, Darren and I were able to follow up on the recommendations in the PWC report for the RSC. Read the Message from the President.
