AR institute prepares meeting, adopts new logo

The IIAR has been making steady progress over the summer. So far we have 95 people signed up on our English-language list and a further 12 in our German chapter.

This week the IIAR’s interim board, of which I am one, announces the Institute’s new logo. You can see it on the right hand side.

Preparations are accellerating for our meeting in Bracknell, near London’s Heathrow Airport, on September 7. The meeting will review the board membership and discuss the work of four working groups lookin at topics such as training, ethics and relations with the analyst houses. While the meeting itself will start at 5 pm, working groups will meet immediately beforehand to discuss their tasks. I’ll be convening the working group on training, and others will organise parallel discussions on additional topics.
