The RSA is very pleased to introduce you to our newest Board members elected at the recent RSA AGM.
Neil Lee is is Professor of Economic Geography at the London School of Economics and Political Science. Neil is the new Chair of the Regional Studies Association.
I’m delighted to take over as Chair of the RSA. It’s a great organisation, characterised by its inclusive community, international reach, and the high-quality, impactful research it champions. I’ll be building on the success of Jessie Poon’s tenure and would like to thank her for her hard work and commitment over a very difficult period. I look forward to working with all members of the RSA community as the Association continues to thrive.
Sarah Ayres takes up the role of Treasurer of the RSA Board. Sarah is a Political Scientist at the University of Bristol, specialising in devolution, place-based policy making and city leadership.
I’m delighted to be elected to the Regional Studies Association Board. I’m committed to working with the excellent RSA team to promote diversity, inclusion and the pursuit of excellent regional studies scholarship across the globe.
Marcin Dąbrowski is an Assistant Professor at the Department of Urbanism at TU Delft’s Faculty of Architecture and the Built Environment. He joins the Board as a Trustee.
Given that RSA has been my core academic community and supported my research in many ways almost since the beginning of my career, joining the RSA Board as a trustee is a very meaningful step for me. I look very much forward to contributing to the excellent work that the RSA is doing for its members – especially those at the early stages of their academic paths – and for the advancement of cutting-edge research and policies for regions and cities.
The RSA is delighted to welcome Neil, Sarah and Marcin, whose skills and experience will provide additional strength, knowledge and diversity to the Board.
