An editorial from Frode Forland - Vice Chair of G-I-N 2012-2013.
We are delighted to welcome some new members, who have joined since December 2012 and we look forward to hearing some more about them in future editions of enGINe. We are always looking for the opportunity to let members know about each other and discover what talent is within our community - such communication can lead to greater opportunities for learning and collaboration.
