Happy New Year!
As many of you are aware, RAGnet changes its name this month to ARMA,
the Association of Research Managers and Administrators (UK). Our new
and inclusive name reflects the diversity of over 600 individual members
in universities, funding bodies, NHS Trusts and independent research
institutes, at all levels of research administration and management. We
hope that those of you who are not yet members will consider joining us.
One of the first ways this change can be seen is in the renaming of our
email lists. The rag list has now been renamed [log in to unmask], and

postings to [log in to unmask] will be forwarded to the new address for
some time, I hope you will find the new name easy to remember and will
start using it straight away to send your queries and notifications of
events and jobs in research management and administration to over 1100
list members. If you have the address stored in a contacts directory,
please update it now. If, like me, you use a mail filter to store
postings to this list in a special folder, you should update that too to
recognise the new address (on Outlook, you can do this using
If you have any queries about the email list, please reply directly
(i.e. not reply-all!) to me.
