I am delighted to have been elected as the new Chair of the FWSA UK & Ireland. On behalf of the Executive Committee, I would like to express our thanks to outgoing Chair Kate Sang for her hard work over the last four years.

I am very pleased to have the opportunity to Chair the FWSA and I will be working hard to fulfil the objectives set out in my mission statement. I hope this will be an exciting and productive three years for the Association and am very much looking forward to working with members and the Executive Committee as we continue to develop the important work of the FWSA.

Dr Charlotte Mathieson
