In memoriam - Geoff McMullen

On behalf of all ICS members we would like to offer our deepest condolences to the family of Geoff McMullen who recently passed away.

Geoff worked closely with the Irish Computer Society and ECDL Ireland for many years and contributed greatly to society.

Geoff began working in IT in the 60's with roles at Univac, Shell, JANET and Ukerna going on to run the University of London Computer Centre for three years.

He was a pioneer in the field of IT CPD helping to develop the CPD framework SFIA and the Professional Development Scheme with the British Computer Society. In 2001 he became BCS President where he served as both representative for CEPIS and ECDL Foundation.  He was President of CEPIS for two years and a Director of the ECDL Foundation for four.

We remember Geoff as a great friend to ICS, thank him for his work and send our thoughts and prayers to the McMullen family.
