    Yann – thank you. This is a closed Forum, so I have no problem with names being brought forward here.
    On the general question of nominations, I will be compiling the nominations that have been made to date for circulation and approval by Council members. We have nominations for College Medal, President’s Award, President’s Commendation, and maybe for Hon Fellowship too.
