Professor Hay was selected for the role of foundation Director following a nationwide search for a suitable candidate. Iain is Matthew Flinders Emeritus Distinguished Professor at Flinders University. He has also served as President of the Institute of Australian Geographers and First Vice-President of the International Geographical Union. He holds two doctorates, the first of which he completed as Fulbright Scholar at the University of Washington, as well as prestigious management credentials.

Iain Hay takes on this role as the Society embarks on a new program to share its vast treasures more publicly, attract new members, and build professional connections. This is a pivotal moment in the history the RGSSA and it is a game changer. Iain could not be more enthused by what an important step the Society is taking in appointing a Director.
