Dear all,

My term of office ends in the summer and I have announced that I think 
it is time for me to step down. I have been having an email discussion 
with Steve Lionel because he strikes me as very suitable as a successor. 
He is willing to take on the role. He has retired recently but would 
like to remain active re the Fortran standard.

I have checked with the people that regularly attend WG5 meetings and 
all support the idea of Steve as convenor. As ever, I seek consensus, 
and I have it. Thank you, Steve, for agreeing to step forward.

I will set the formal process in motion. The appointment is made by SC22 
and there will have to be a change of country because the country of the 
convener has first refusal. With consensus in WG5, I don't think there 
will be any problems.

With best wishes,
