Editor Setsuya Suzuki Presidents Greetings Kikuo Kobayashi In the existing structure of the International Council there are two Japanese directors Drs. Senda and Hashimoto who attend the annual International Council meetings to carry out their duties. The number of members in the International Council has been determined by the number of members in each Section. Nevertheless an amendment was implemented where it was decided to decrease the number of allocations for the Council. I am deeply concerned our representation will reduce to one seat in the near future due to a decrease in Fellows in Section VII. Furthermore if membership continues to decrease and we fail to reach a certain number it may possibly doom us to lose our post at the Council. However it is not a wise decision to concentrate only on membership growth in the aim of retaining the present number of seats on the Council. This will cause a decrease in the quality of members of Section VII. We should face up to this significant matter and find a solution for further prosperity.
