In its annual meeting on 17 Oct 2020, IFSAM Council decided, among other topics, to celebrate the 30 years’ anniversary of the federation on December 8th, 2020, with an online, due to the COVID-19 pandemic, event where former leaders of IFSAM will be honored for their contributions and service to the federation. Past president Michael Morley, President Yang Zhang, Treasurer (and former president) Yvon Pesqueux and President-elect Xavier Castañer will deliver speeches about the past 30 years and future plans of IFSAM.
