New Editors of Bernoulli Society Bulletin e-Briefs and Bernoulli News

It has been a pleasure to serve as the E-Briefs bulletin editor for the last two years. I would like to thank all Officers, Council members, Committee chairs, and Editors of the Bernoulli Society, as well as all other members of the Bernoulli Society, for their promptness in providing information. My special thanks go to Claudia Klüppelberg for the very warm welcome, and to Adam Jakubowski and Leonardo Rolla for their help and support. I am also thankful to Carlos Améndola, who shared his experience with me regarding this job.
I am pleased to welcome Alessia Caponera, who will take over this role from the next issue. I am sure Alessia will do a great job for the next term.
Furthermore, I am using this opportunity to announce that I will be taking over the role of Editor of Bernoulli News from Manuele Leonelli, who has done an excellent job in the past few years.
