Andy Long retires as Chapter Chair

Professor Andy Long has been the chair of SAMPE UK & Ireland Chapter these last 13 years. This has been a long period of service during which there have been many developments in composites, and new generations of personnel joining the committee. Andy has been instrumental in the leadership of the Chapter, and it is very fitting for his "Swan Song" to be the SAMPE Europe event in Southampton.

As we say goodbye and farewell to Andy, we extend a welcome to Tim Wybrow who is taking up the role.
