CRJ News – all change!
May 2022: Claire Sanders, who has been a stalwart of the Crisis Response Journal, will be leaving us to have a baby. We are sorry to see her go, but delighted for her, and owe her a debt of gratitude for her calm head, brilliant (and much needed) administration skills, good humour, intelligence and efficiency. We will miss her, and wish her all the best for the future.
The good news is that Sue Chamberlain will be joining the team. Sue has worked extensively in both the public and the private sector, latterly Senior Management in Higher Education Professional services, where she managed the teams responsible for the University Library’s student/academic community facing services in the built and digital environment. She was also responsible for managing teams to meet the Covid-19 challenge with policy development.
Past roles include commissioning, writing and editing features, news, managing conferences, liaising with professional and government agencies, the UK Ministry of Defence, the European Commission, NATO and the UN, commercial companies and PR agencies.
Sue has a long-standing interest and involvement in the crisis response sector, and has worked with Emily Hough before in publishing and conferences within the Fire and Rescue sector, where she reported on fire service and humanitarian activities from around the world, including military operations. She says: “I am excited to be working with Emily again, having followed CRJ over the years. Always important, thoughtful, wide-ranging and ahead of the curve – it seems to me that we have never needed CRJ more than now.”
