Dr. JOSE LUIS CECENIA GAMEZ died on the 3rd of January 2012


On the 3rd of January 2012 a highly distinguished and much appreciated member of our Association, Dr. JOSE LUIS CECENIA GAMEZ, after 96 years of a life plenty of human and professional achievements, passed away. Professor Cecenia –whom several of you knew personally-  was the key figure in laying the foundations of our Association. He not only invited 20 persons to formally establish it, but was elected by them as its first President, in 1994. Ever since, he was appointed for life as its Honorary President.

He was particularly keen in endowing it with a mature and legal statute and with its main objectives and courses of action. But he also strove to jealously keeping its independency in regard to political and economic negative influences. He will be always remembered for bestowing on our country a solid scientific association.

We invite all of you who witnessed his wholehearted friendship and entire commitment to the cause of regional science, to join us in our mourning, and to help us achieve in fullness his legacy. MAY HE REST IN PEACE.
