DARMA has a new President!

23 Nov 2018 10:41 | Olaf Svenningsen (Administrator)

It is my unreserved pleasure to announce that DARMA has a new President: Annedorte Vad, Head of the Research Support Office at Copenhagen Business School (CBS) was elected by acclamation at the Extraordinary General Assembly at CBS on 20 November, and by 86 votes for (one against) from the online voting. You can get to know Annedorte better by reading DARMA's nomination of her to the INORMS Award for Excellence in Research Management, which she was one of the first recipients of earlier this year in Edinburgh.

I could not have wished for a better successor, and I am confident that DARMA will not only continue to be a relevant and important association, but will evolve and become even better under Annedorte's leadership. It feels really good.

Now follows a transition period, during which all the legal and bureaucratic duties and powers are transferred from me to Annedorte. Sometime early next year, the formal handing over of the role as president will be transferred, most likely at the first Board meeting of the new year (the exact dates remain to be agreed upon).

At the Extraordinary General Assembly and the web voting, the proposed amendment to the statutes was unanimously accepted. The statutes have been updated to reflect the amendment.

Olaf Svenningsen
