Graham is delighted at his election as a representative of Fellows of the Institute on Council. His original statement of interests included (a) enhancing IOM3 in strategically important effective technology transfer, and (b) improving the value of IOM3 membership to members, including continual review of the part played by Materials World. He looks forward to representing these matters and welcomes views, suggestions and any input by e-mail.
