On behalf of the InterRidge community, as the current InterRidge Chair and Co-Chair, we thank Bramley Murton, Jon Copley and Debbie Milton from the UK InterRidge Office for their leadership and great service to the InterRidge community during the past three years. Under their leadership the UK InterRidge Office has expanded IR national memberships by adding Canada and Portugal to the Associate Member list and has started new initiatives such as the cruise bursary scheme, which has benefited dozens of young students at the very beginning of their scientific career.
