The annual audit of IAWA's finances, normally scheduled for March has been postponed until next year, to comply with Covid-19 regulations. The Audit Committee is now composed of Renee Klaasen and Leen van de Oever. Leen succeeds Jifke Koek-Noorman who retired from the Audit Committee last year. The IAWA financial reserves maintained in bank accounts in Leiden, the Netherlands; Madison, Wisconsin, USA; and Nanjing, China, are in good shape, and annual membership dues will remain unaltered for 2021. IAWA Members who are in arrears with their dues payments are urgently requested to pay our Financial Officer, Cees Lut in Leiden. Members of the IAWA China Group should transfer their dues to Zhai Shengcheng in Nanjing.
