“At the time I was sceptical of the need for another supranational science journalism body as were my fellow executive (ABSW) committee members and could not see any point in the WFSJ. However, I saw the potential of the organisation and was co-opted to the board. I saw that the international community of science journalists could work together to promote critical science coverage and help each other, especially those associations in countries where there was little science coverage. 

I proposed that the ABSW join WFSJ at our Annual General Meeting of that year attended by our members as well as our executive committee members. The vote to join was unanimous. Since then, as many of you know the ABSW has been a leading and supportive association for WFSJ including organising and hosting the highly successful London WCSJ.

In terms of your strategy – the reason we converted from sceptics to enthusiasts is that WFSJ had a glorious, inspiring vision. I think the same is true of other associations too.”
