IUCr 1999 18th General Assembly - Changes in names of Adhering Bodies

The Netherlands

The Chair of FOMRE and the Chair of NVK (the Dutch Association for Crystallography) have formally requested that NVK replace FOMRE as the Adhering Body for the Netherlands. The Royal Dutch Academy of Science would continue to pay the membership fees for NVK in Category II, as it had done for FOMRE.

NVK has formed a National Committee for Crystallography [D. Feil (Chair), J.L. de Boer, C.Th. Kiers, J. Kroon, R. Olthof-Hazekamp (Secretary), D. Reefman, F. Tuinstra].

The Executive Committee recommends to the General Assembly that the new Adhering Body for The Netherlands should be the NVK.

The UK

The Royal Society has given formal notice that it will cease adherence to the IUCr at the Glasgow Congress. The Royal Society recommends that the British Crystallographic Association (BCA) should become the new Adhering Body for the UK.

The President of the BCA has confirmed that the BCA agrees to become the Adhering Body and pay the subscription in Category V.

The membership of the National Committee would remain unchanged [A.M. Glazer (Chair), F.H. Allen, P. Barnes, A.J. Blake, R.L. Brady, K.M. Crennell, C.J. Gilmore, S. Harris, D.G. Hart, J.A.K. Howard, J.A. Jutson, S.J. Maginn, H. Muirhead, P.A. Thomas, C.C. Wilson, M.M. Woolfson].

The Executive Committee recommends to the General Assembly that the new Adhering Body for the UK should be the BCA.
