Changes at the Top of the IAP

Martin Hale


We have come to the end of the 2020-2022 Biennium and must thank our outgoing President, Bob Osamura from Tokyo for all of his hard work in promoting the aims and objectives of the IAP over the last 2 years in difficult circumstances . Following the successful Sydney Congress in October 2022, we look forward to the new 2022-2024 Biennium

We welcome our new President, Martin Hale from Johannesburg, and look forward to his involvement in the activities of the IAP over the next 2 years.

We also welcome our new President-Elect, Henry Tazelaar from Arizona, who has been our Treasurer for the last 4 years .

Therefore we also welcome Eyas Hattab from Louisville as our new Treasurer.

These are exciting changes for the Executive and there will be challenges for us all as we prepare for the next IAP Congress in Cancun in October 2024. In the meantime, the Executive will meet at the forthcoming USCAP meeting in New Orleans in March 2023.

Ray McMahon


There are also changes within the Secretariat. We are sad to be losing Charles Ramey and Allison Booth from their roles as Assistant Secretary to Ray McMahon, who will be staying in the post of Secretary for a further 4 years.

Sam Kiely

Stan Shaw

We are very pleased to welcome our new Assistant Secretary, Sam Kiely, who will continue her role as Administrator with the British Division alongside this post. Sam was deeply involved with the organization of the Glasgow 2020 Congress and is very familiar with the workings of the IAP.

She will work closely with the IAP’s Communications Coordinator, Stan Shaw. Together, they will work to enhance the capabilities of the IAP to interact with the IAP Divisions and Assemblies around the world to promote pathology education.
