Richard Bennett’s Thank You Message

Dear IAPB members,

I am writing to express my thanks to the many members (over 70) who invested their time and thoughts into completing the recent survey on IAPB strategy.

This has provided a very rich resource for the Executive Committee (meeting on 5 February) to discuss as the basis for a first-draft outline strategy for 2013-2017. I have appreciated the chance to examine your views and perspectives, and am hopeful that this will provide some exciting ways forward for IAPB in the coming years.

A first-draft strategy will be ready by the third week of February. This will come to you then, for your further thoughts and comments. And these will then help to feed into more detailed strategy drafts, working towards the Board meeting in Bangkok in April which will have an opportunity to discuss and refine the new strategy further. 

Your continued engagement with the process will be very much valued, and is important in ensuring that IAPB has the right set of priorities for its next few years.

With thanks and best wishes

Richard Bennett
