Let’s start by wishing everyone a healthy, safe, and productive year for all the members of the ISTFP in 2024! That being said we, at the Public relations and Communications Committee, decided to start the new year with a review of 2023 so all members are aware of general health of our society. We hope it will encourage those of you who have worked tirelessly doing volunteer work to contribute to the society and spark interest in others to get involve.
To us, the ISTFP is like a living organism so we have made a list of health indicators that we will try to review each year. And, since we love empirical evidence, we will show you numbers that we will refresh every year. Let’s see what the data tells us. Is the ISTFP growing or slowly fading away?
