Dear ISRHML members,
After three decades of countless volunteer hours, ISRHML has reached an important milestone and entered a partnership with Global Management Partners, LLC (GMP), a full-service association management company that will bring over 50 years of combined experience to ISRHML, providing a strong infrastructure, proven processes and systems and shared resources – particularly in the area of financial management. ISRHML will now have a dedicated team of association professionals that will empower us to thrive, grow, and advance our objectives.
The period of transition from a solely volunteer-based to a professionally managed society will begin December 1 and is scheduled to be completed no later than March 31, 2018 when I pass on the ISRHML Presidency to Dr. Sharon Donovan.
We anticipate ISRHML to become even more international, more active, and more impactful when experienced professionals manage the day-to-day operations while our elected leadership dedicates their time and effort to the promotion of excellence in research and the dissemination of research findings in the field of human milk and lactation.
