IUSSP Secretariat restructuring
We regret to inform you that the Bureau recently restructured the Secretariat for financial reasons. The ongoing decline in membership income as well as core funding over the past several years were the main reasons for this difficult decision. After a critical review of all secretariat positions it was decided to eliminate the position of internet engineer and membership officer. The workload associated with processing membership payments and maintaining the membership database has been greatly reduced with the adoption of membership management software which automates reminders and payments and we will be entrusting more of the maintenance of the website to an external provider we have been working with for several years. Any remaining tasks will be taken up by the other members of the Secretariat. The Bureau and Council thank Philippe for his long service to the IUSSP and wish him well in his future career.
