We warmly welcome Doris J Shallcross Ed.D., Professor Emerita University of Massachusetts, to our International Review Panel. Amongst her many achievements, Dorie is past President of the Creative Education Foundation, to which she has made a tremendous contribution over many years. Running alongside the Foundation's annual conference, the Creative Problem Solving Institute (CPSI), Dorie established the President's Convocation, an annual international meeting of those of us running creativity centres throughout the world - a facility we found really valuable.
We have equally good memories of our two UK national conferences when I was working at Leeds Metropolitan University, Creativity in Education and Creativity in Organisations for which Dorie was the keynote speaker. After these conferences, we travelled to Lancashire with her to help trace her UK ancestry - another memorable day! You can find a summary of some of Dorie's key achievements and current activities here.
