What Is Old Is New Again

Restructuring has been a key word for some time within IUPAC, as this 12-year old cartoon, previously published in CI, candidly testified. Over time, questions find answers, and good composition glue strengthens. My point of view is that the structure of the Union—the way it operates and the resulting benefits for the chemistry community—relies essentially on the people involved. My greatest privilege while working at IUPAC has not been working for the Union, but has been working with the volunteers that surround it. As it will be four years next month that my work ID became fabienne at iupac dot org, I feel it is time for me to say "thanks" to you—and I might add "thanks for sticking around."
