Dilip Kanwar, the recently elected Chair of IHMSDO, said: "As a volunteer organisation we really value the input provided by those that participated in the past as well as the work done by our current volunteers. Seen in the light of today, our predecessors accomplished quite a lot given the limited resources. We need to be aware of our history - not to be humbled by it, but to understand how IHMSDO became to be what it is today."
