Following discussions, it is with great pleasure that we can announce new personnel on the working group, and look forward to exciting and productive times ahead for the Society in the conservation field.

The group now includes individuals who are also committee members of the Icon Stained Glass Section committee, professionals from a range of the leading conservation studios, and the Master of the Worshipful Company of Glaziers. We are also very happy that we have a leading art historian of 19th-century stained glass who can act as an advocate for work of that period.

We are very grateful to these individuals for agreeing to contribute, and speaking for the Chair, we are greatly encouraged that there is an emphasis on youth within our group amongst the more established members.
