As outgoing President for SLA Europe in 2017, I’m pleased to announce SLA Europe’s board composition for 2018. I look forward to working with our 2018 President Katharine Schopflin over the next 12 months and would like to congratulate our new President Elect, Simon Burton, on his appointment.

Katharine Schopflin commented: “I’m delighted and honoured to be taking over the Presidency of SLA-Europe from such illustrious predecessors. This year we will provide some great learning opportunities for members all over our network, as well as face to face events in the UK. We particularly want to reach out to those new in the profession and our Students and new professionals committee will provide a focus for that. But ultimately we aim to provide professional support for all our members. Feel free to email me if you have any ideas at
