IASA Award of Recognition 2011

Congratulations to George Boston on receiving the 2011 IASA Award of Recognition, announced at the IASA Annual conference 2011 in Frankfurt.

Every organisation that wishes to remain vital, focused and relevant to its membership is in need of those individuals will fearlessly stand up, express the views and criticisms that so many of us silently keep to ourselves, and relentlessly check to see that their criticism has been noted. Without them the checks and balances which help us to stay on the right track, moving in the right direction, do not come into play, and we can lose our way for want of knowing the views of the members. But such an individual can only be taken seriously if they “do” as well as “say”; that the criticisms and comments they make are made credible by the things they have done. In the vernacular they should only talk the talk if they can walk the walk!
