Message from the Secretary General
It is with deep regret that Prof. Gert Brussaard offered his resignation as URSI President at the annual Board meeting in April
It is with deep regret that Prof. Gert Brussaard offered his resignation as URSI President at the annual Board meeting in April since he felt that due to health problems he was no longer able to fulfill his duties as President the way he had hoped to do. He proposed to the Board that Prof. François Lefeuvre, current Past-President, should replace him as President for the remainder of the triennium. The Board unanimously accepted this proposal, thanking Prof. Gert Brussaard for his dedication to URSI and asked him to remain on the Board as Past President.
In line with the URSI Statutes, all member Committees have been informed and consulted about this proposal and support this change in responsibilities which ensures a continuous operation within the Board of Officers.
Paul Lagasse, Secretary General
