As a long standing member of the association, I would like to express my support for Prof. Gerard Goggin as candidate for a second term as Secretary General of the IAMCR.

I have appreciated his activities during the first term, his informal and at the same time very effective approach, and I am sure his experience will be an assett also in these times of uncertainties, fast changing situations and challenges.

I would like to support Gerard’s candidacy for Secretary General. I have been working with Gerard for a number of years already and have always admired his professional and personal qualities. In addition to being a true professional and a dedicated member of IAMCR, Gerard is a very nice and friendly person, which is an important quality of a Secretary General.

The first time I met Prof Goggin in person, it was surreal. I thought he was one of the kindest, warmest, easy-going, and genuinely supportive senior academics I've ever met in our field. He was not only generous with his time, he was also willing to mentor and support me should I ever need his assistance. Like Nico, he epitomizes what IAMCR as an association embodies: an association that truly 'sees' its members and that, in the most genuine of ways, supports young scholars by giving them a sense of belonging. Gerard has been an active and hardworking member of IAMCR for many years and there is nothing that will give me pleasure than seeing him return for a second tenure as secretary of IAMCR. I wholeheartedly endorse his candidacy.
