Society Chief Executive Update

The Learned Society of Wales has announced that Emma Adamson will not take up the post of Chief Executive in January 2022.

Emma, who was appointed in October, has chosen to remain at the University of South Wales. 

Professor Hywel Thomas, President of the Society, said: “Emma was part of an outstanding shortlist of candidates and we were looking forward to working with her. However, a new opportunity has emerged at USW that Emma wanted to pursue.  

“We hope to make an announcement about our new Chief Executive shortly.

“I know our dedicated staff team will ensure the Society continues to deliver its important work as well as ever.”
