Dear Members of ERSA, dear Colleagues,

I hope this finds you well. 

I would like to start by congratulating and welcoming on board two ERSAC Representatives, Fernando as President of the Spanish Section, for his second term, and Danny Ben-Shahar, the new Chair of the Israeli Regional Science Association. I wish Fernando and Danny every success in their new responsibilities, assuring them ERSA close support whenever needed.

We look forward to the final response to our upcoming ERSA Congress, with registrations increasing every day. We have already guaranteed the participation of an excellent number of regional scientists and experts from across the globe. If you have not already registered, we encourage you to take advantage of the early bird fees, which expire tomorrow (with an extra day).
