EDITORIAL

ABS-NL 2022-09-ER - ressel
Dear Members and Friends of the ABS!

First and foremost, a heartfelt thank you for the much-appreciated feedback from so many of you over the past few weeks. As you let us know, this was due to the significant presence of traditional and social media and the ability to “handle the event of the Queen's death with dignity and appreciation.” We take your feedback as an incentive for our further activities! We are sincerely pleased if we have achieved our goal of providing you, as a valued member of our honourable society, not only with high-quality content related to the passing of Queen Elizabeth II but also to make you a little bit proud.

Because of the extensive length of the special edition of ABS News as a summary of all our Queen Elizabeth II activities sent to you on Sept. 26th, we focus today on the events that have recently taken place, as well as what we are organising for you in October. We wish you a great start to the autumn and look forward to seeing you at the next best opportunity!

Yours Jochen Ressel,
ABS Secretary-General & ABS News Editor-in-Chief



PRESIDENTIAL MESSAGE

ABS-NL 2022-10 - tiroch
The better is the enemy of the good

The ABS already has an impressive presence with ongoing postings on social media, with its homepage, blogs, policy paper, Facebook and Instagram. I can wholeheartedly recommend everyone to check it out. I also know what I'm talking about, as I look at our contributions several times a day with great interest since each area is managed entirely independently and with individual responsibility by a liable board member.

Now it's time for the next step: we're focusing on LinkedIn and Twitter. It is currently a "work in progress", and the first project's progress can already be seen, so that I can expect the realisation and implementation this year. Now I know that some of our members are very active and knowledgeable on both channels. Hence my request: We are grateful for the support and content-related know-how. Don't hesitate to get in touch with me by phone or email - I look forward to each and every one!

Prof KR Dr Kurt Tiroch
ABS Präsident
