I am very proud to announce that I have been appointed as Secretary in the newly elected board of RC52 “Sociology of Professional Groups” of the International Sociological Association. It is a great honour and I am very excited to take on the task after Jens-Christian Smeby, who serve as Secretary in the last terms. I joined ISA RC52 board in 2013 as associated member and I have been elected for my first term in 2014, serving as Representative of the Early Career Researchers. The hard work in community building and involvement of Phd students in the activities of RC52, also thanks to the unofficial ISA RC52 blog that I managed in the last years, have been the reasons by which ISA RC52 members have renewed their trust in me. The great support of all board members and the trust that president Helena Serra has put in me makes me confident I will be worthy of RC52 members’ trust.

Good luck to all the RC52 board members!
