I'd like to thank Connie for her leadership, and also for nominating me to take over the Chair. Along with the board and the staff at NOAA NCDC, she has done a great job of developing and maintaining the ITRDB as the important global data source that we know and love.

Although the board has the responsibility for the direction the ITRDB takes, it is of course a community resource. We'd very much like to hear comments and suggestions from the whole community to help guide us. If there are particular aspects of the ITRDB that you feel are lacking or if you have ideas for improvements that would help stimulate collaboration and research please let us know.

Best wishes

Hi all,

I'd like to announce the new Chair of the ITRDB Advisory Board, Peter Brewer of the Laboratory of Tree-Ring Research at the University of Arizona.

Given Peter's involvement with the international dendro community to develop a tree-ring data standard (TRiDas) as well as his service to the community in the form of software development (i.e., Tellevo, TRiCYCLE), I could think of no one better qualified to take on the Chairship. The current advisory board members have warmly endorsed my nomination of Peter.

In addition, board members Ed Cook, Henri Grissino-Mayer, Jonathan Palmer, Dave Stahle, and Keith Briffa have graciously agreed to stay on the board.

We thank Fritz Schweingruber, Tom Levanic, and Ricardo Villalba for their time on the board, and welcome Ulf Buentgen, Esther Jansma, and Eugenia Ferrero to take their places.

best regards,

Connie Woodhouse
