Message from the CIB CEO Don Ward
Welcome to a new-look newsletter format, which reflects the migration of our website to a new platform and the use of other modern apps for mailing lists etc. This process is very much an on-going ‘work in progress’, so please give us your feedback on what you like and what you don’t, so we can continue to refine the new look by the time we launch the first phase of the new website this month. The second phase of the website will have a focus group of members and other users to help us with the brief and to refine the functionality, if you are interested to contribute to this process please contact anyone in the secretariat team.
