Important message from your President

Dear Colleagues,

I have just heard the very sad news of the untimely death of Mr David Noble.

David and I met through our service on the IFPSM Board and his dedication, drive and wholehearted commitment to our shared profession will be greatly missed.

David touched so many people from across the world and I know that he was held in great esteem.

On behalf of the IFPSM global community, I would like to extend our support

and condolences to his wife Jenny, his family and staff at CIPS. Our thoughts are with them all.

This shocking news will have had a great impact on many people and the loss of his

leadership will mean that CIPS members and staff must be very upset. I can assure you, I,

my colleagues on the Board of IFPSM and the IFPSM community, offer our

wholehearted support to them all during this dreadful time.

If you wish to read more about David, please go to the CIPS website:

Yours sincerely

He Liming
