    May take this opportunity to recognize the important role IAHSA is playing in bring together people from different geographical diversity through various platforms. Indeed, we are grateful as African continent to have Richard from Uganda sitting on the IAHSA Board of Directors. This on its own encircles IAHSA’s Democratic structures and a sense of inclusiveness in its structures as a global institution.. Congratulations to all new board members. The 2015 IAHSA/ACSA International Joint Conference was a spectacular and memorable and afforded most of us an opportunity to interact and network with colleagues from the global perspective. Bravo IAHSA and keep it up.
    Finally, how do join IAHSA as an individual as well as an organization?
