ICIAM President's message - "About the new ICIAM website"

Dear Presidents and Representatives of ICIAM member Societies, 

 

First of all, let me apologize for the long email, but this is important business for our Society.
We are happy to announce that, as you probably already know,  the new website of our Society is already online at the address:
http://www.iciam.org/

We need now your help to have an updated and correct website as far as your Society's data is concerned. 

We thank you in advance for helping us with this task at this initial stage. In the future, please update this information 
whenever changes happen in your Society, such as a change of President or Representatives.
 
What we ask you to do is to revise your own page’s information and also to update the information related to your Society.
For personal accounts you can do it yourself. For the Society’s data, this has to be done by (and only by) the Editor of the Society.
At the moment, at the initial launch of the website, the Editor role has been assigned to the President, but this can be changed rather easily (see below). 
 
Please follow the instructions given below, that are also available on the website in a document called  "FAQ for members" (Membership section).
 
Best regards, and thank you very much in advance for your help. 
 
Maria J. Esteban, President of ICIAM
