Stacey Charlesworth has left the IQCS council. Stacey loved being on Council, and appreciated the chance to get involved outside of her day to day job, and of course to mix with other ops people. Stacey has been an integral part of the council and we will miss her dearly. Say hello to Stacey when you see her at our upcoming members party.
