In an off-Plenary RDA Council meeting held in early July, Dr. Ross Wilkinson was named co-chair of Council, serving alongside Dr. Francine Berman. Dr. Wilkinson, the Executive Director for the Australian National Data Service, has been an existing member of Council and will be a great asset in his new role. Council welcomed new members Edit Herczog, Managing Director at Vision & Values SPRL, and Sandra Collins, Director at the National Library of Ireland. Kay Raseroka, consultant and trainer for IFLA Building Strong Library Associations, was also welcomed back and will be serving another term. Special recognition was given to John Wood, former co-Chair of RDA Europe, and Patrick Cocquet, chief executive officer of Cap Digital, for their previous contributions as RDA Council co-Chair and member.
