I am very happy to announce that our association has elected a new Vice President-- Lawrence M. Rudner. Larry Rudner is Vice-President of Research and Development at the Graduate Management Admission Council, in McLean, Virginia, USA. He has an impressive professional career in educational testing. He is one of the major ambassadors of high-quality practical testing inspired and supported by sound psychometric research. Larry is not new in our association. We can say that he played a role of utmost importance in the foundation of IACAT by sponsoring and organizing the 2007 and 2009 GMAC conferences on Computerized Adaptive Testing. It was at these successful conferences, where not only the viability of IACAT became clear but also the preparatory work to establish the association was done. Larry, welcome to the Board of Directors of IACAT! Theo Eggen Past President
