After six years at the helm, I am passing on the convenorship of the Spalding Symposium. It has been a real honour to look after the event, with the help of Brian Black and also of local hosts at the various venues. Although a cancelled event in a pandemic was not how I hoped to conclude my convenorship, I am very excited to know that the new convenors will be bringing their fresh ideas and energy to take the event forwards. These new co-convenors (also co-treasurers) are Karen O’Brien-Kop and Avni Chag, and Brian Black will continue to support them as secretary. I know that the Symposium is in very capable hands, and I look forward to continuing to attend and support the event over the coming years.
