John O’Brien will be taking over the position of President of the SAI, Ann Burke will be the new Postgraduate Representative, and Hazel O’Brien is starting as the new Membership Secretary. The SAI Committee and community at large would like to extend great thanks and warm wishes to the outgoing members of the committee - Lucy Michael, Kirsty Doyle and Eoin Flaherty who gave tremendous service in their respective roles, and done enormous work for the discipline.
Message from the Outgoing President
It has been a very great pleasure to lead the SAI for the last 2 years with a great team, and some very valuable and impactful events. During the last 2 years, we have particularly developed work on supporting sociologists in the IoT sector, building our postgraduate supports, and engaging in European discussions through the ESA about the direction and future of Sociology in academic and policy communities. The SAI is a fantastic community to be part of, and I hope that we have continued to represent your interests fully and widely. I wish the team the very best with the continued work for our members, and will continue to enjoy my membership of this great community for a long time to come.
