General Secretary's Column

General Secretary

I am delighted to report continued progress in a number of areas. The increase in membership continues, with a rise to 1349 at the time of writing. This includes 384 concessionary members, the majority of whom are trainees in pathology.

We have developed a marketing initiative targeted at increasing the number of overseas members by providing details of the Society at international meetings, particularly the United States and Canadian Academy of Pathology meeting.

At this year’s meeting in Denver, there was significant interest from North American pathologists, particularly in view of the benefits of membership (see below) and it is hoped that this will translate into an increase in membership. The number of schemes available to members continues to increase, with the introduction this year of the Educational Grant Scheme. This scheme recognises the importance of pathology education and provides ring-fenced support for initiatives in this area. All concessionary members have now received a copy of the diagnostic pathology manual prepared by Dr Paul Tadrous and published by Wiley Blackwell. This is also available to any other member at a heavily discounted rate and members have also now received a copy of the TNM Atlas to compliment the TNM Manual. All concessionary members now receive Diagnostic Histopathology (formerly Current Diagnostic Pathology) and, again, other members can subscribe to this title at a significantly reduced rate. In view of the success of the provision of these various publications to members, we are now discussing further possible book titles that could be provided to members in a similar way.


Development of the Society’s publication strategy has, at its core, the re-design of the Society website. To this end, a ‘brainstorming’ meeting was held in March this year to develop a
brief for the development of a new website, incorporating an educational portal. This brief was sent out for tender and I am delighted to report that i-Path Diagnostics has been appointed to develop the Society’s web portal in conjunction with the publications group.

This is an extremely important initiative, which is central to further development of the Society’s activities: initial discussions are now underway with a view to launching the new website in early 2009.

Following a successful round of elections, I am delighted to announce the following new officers and committee members:
President-Elect: Prof Andrew Wyllie, Cambridge
Chair, Education & Training Sub-committee: Dr Emyr Benbow, Manchester
Chair-Elect, Research Sub-committee: Dr Mark Arends, Cambridge
Committee Members: Dr JJ Going, Glasgow; Prof AM Hanby, Leeds; Prof GA Meijer, Amsterdam; Dr JS Reis-Filho, London;
Dr RHW Simpson, Exeter; Dr EJ Soilleux, Oxford.

I would like to take this opportunity to thank the retiring committee members for their input to the Society during their terms of office. Particular thanks are due to Professors Paola Domizio, Jim Lowe and Peter Hamilton, and Dr Suha Deen. Suha has done an excellent job masterminding the  newsletter over the last three years; Dr James Going has agreed to take over the editorship for the next three years. Paola has been an excellent inaugural chair of the Education and Training Sub-committee, leading this important component of the Society’s activities. And the Society owes a great debt of gratitude to Jim and Peter for their excellent work in developing and maintaining the Society website. With the development of the publication strategy and the appointment of i-Path Diagnostics to support the Society’s web development, it has been agreed that the website will be managed by the publication group, in conjunction with i-Path, rather than expecting a single webmaster to undertake this increasingly onerous task.
