Many senior members will recall Joan as the focal point for attendees at our major events in the 1990s and early 2000s.


Joan was the wife of Sid Smith FRIN, a Scientist at RAE Farnborough and a very active member of the Technical Committee. The pair of them were invaluable at conferences - Sid looking after presenters and visual aids and Joan running the reception desks.

In early September Joan died of a heart attack whilst travelling with her son in France. We pass our condolences to Sid and their family.
