Suzanne Gill
We are sorry to say goodbye to Suzanne who is retiring from the Board to arrange her emigration to Australia to be with her daughter. We would like to take this opportunity to thank Suzanne, who has made a valuable contribution to the work of the EBU by chairing the Education Working Group. This involved organising the county education research project which culminated in a report presented to the Board in January 2011. We wish Suzanne very good luck with her new life in Australia.
