There are roughly three bodies of people involved in running RofASSS: the consortium, the editorial board, and an advisory board.

The Consortium

The current consortium consists of the following people:

  • Bruce Edmonds (Editor)
  • Edmund Chattoe-Brown (Power behind the scenes)
  • Emile Chappin (Sub-Editor)
  • Melania Borit (Technical Manager)
  • Nick Gotts (Sub-Editor)

The consortium owns RofASSS, and is its ultimate decision-making board. Members serve for up to 10 years, and usually include key posts, such as editor and technical manager.

Advisory Board

This is a collection of the great-and-the-good (we will let you work out which is which) who have agreed to be advisers. We will consult them occasionally in order to help guide the development and policies of RofASSS.
