Dear ISHPES members,
for 2017 my best wishes to all of you. Besides extending to you my greetings, I would like to take the opportunity to remind all of you to pay your annual dues. Please see our homepage under Membership Renewal.
ISHPES is an international association and has members from many cultures and countries around the world. Although world politics are quite frightening right now, I think our successful academic collaborations, cooperations and friendships will overcome these problems.
