The ISN is very grateful to Professor Thomas Coffman for the excellent work as ISN Treasurer until now and for his dedication to the Society. The ISN Executive Committee invites all ISN members and related professional societies to join us in congratulating Professor Shankland and welcoming him as the ISN Treasurer.
