To represent a country, the Delegates need to prepare themselves in advance to be able to give feedback and to make decisions during these meetings. Bettine led the delegation for South Africa and gathered the necessary input from the SA National Committee for SCAR.
During the meeting, Prof Steven Chown of Monash University, previously from South Africa, was awarded Honorary Membership to SCAR, and we would like to congratulate him on this award.
Two new SCAR Vice Presidents were appointed during this meeting: Prof Burcu Ozsoy from Turkey and Dr Marcelo Leppe from Chile
