New President of the CCM

The CIPM appointed Georgette Macdonald as President of the Consultative Committee for Mass and Related Quantities (CCM) during Session III of its 112th meeting in October 2023.

Georgette holds a Bachelor of Applied Sciences degree in Civil Engineering from the University of Ottawa and a Master of Business Administration from Queen’s University. Since 2021, Georgette has been Director General of the National Research Council of Canada’s Metrology Research Centre.

It is an honour to be appointed as the President of the CIPM’s Consultative Committee for Mass and Related Quantities. Although my predecessor, Philippe Richard, leaves big shoes to fill, he ensured the CCM has a clear strategy and well-developed work plan. With the assistance of the very capable Executive Secretary, Hao Fang, I am confident that the CCM will continue to deliver on its mission to establish confidence in the equivalence between national laboratories for mass and a number of related quantities (density, pressure, force, fluid flow, viscosity, hardness, gravitational acceleration).

The BIPM wishes Georgette success in the role and extends its warmest thanks to Philippe Richard of METAS (Switzerland) who held the position from 2012 to 2023.
