Going round in circles with knobs on

John Sheppard interviews Colin Newman, who is retiring after two decades as the Society’s Executive Secretary.
COLIN Newman is the Society; the Society is Colin Newman. This is how many, both within and outside the Society, see things. The Society’s Executive Secretary for the best part of 20 years, his name is well known to members and to many non-members, and his face familiar to all those who have served on Boards or major committees, attended main conferences or general meetings of the Society. Yet this year we have to adjust to a new reality, for at the end of March we lose our good and faithful servant.
