HEIRNET’s future management
We have established a transition committee to oversee the management of HEIRNET in the future as the current co-chairs fade away, the transition committee will be drawn from the HEIRNET conference committee members. See the HOW WE DO IT sub-section, to consult it, please click on the link below.
We would be grateful for any thoughts, comments and suggestions for HEIRNET’s transition phase and development – please send these to firstname.lastname@example.org
