I had a nice surprise this morning when I found my name in the latest Information and Records Management Society (IRMS) Bulletin. Although I feel a little self-conscious about mentioning it here, it gives me the chance to thank the IRMS for electing me an IRMS Fellow and for giving me their ‘Author of the Year’ award for 2016. I'd also like to offer my congratulations to the other new Fellows, award winners and nominees.
