Kim Finney Leaves WDS-SC
We regret to announce the resignation of Kim Finney from the WDS Scientific Committee (WDS-SC). Kim will also leave her post as Manager of the Australian Antarctic Data Centre (WDS Regular Member) at the end of March 2014 to start her own consultancy business, and wishes to devote her efforts towards this new venture. The ICSU Executive Board will now appoint a replacement for Kim based on nominations from the WDS-SC.
On behalf of the WDS Scientific Committee and the International Programme Office, we would like to thank Kim wholeheartedly for the time and energy she has dedicated to ICSU-WDS—especially for the peerless work she put into realizing the International Polar Data Forum—and we wish Kim success in all of her future endeavours.
