Dear Philippe,

CHIN has been one of the founding members of CRM-SIG, actually the 
formation of the CRM-SIG took place in Ottawa during the CIDOC 2000 
Conference. Patricia Young played an essential role in our understanding 
of managing large amounts of cultural heritage data and in the shaping 
of the CIDOC CRM itself from its conception in 1996 on. Kati Geber later 
continued as active and valuable representative of CHIN in the CRM-SIG.

Since CHIN never resigned from being member of CRM-SIG, but just did not 
have an active representative, it is a great pleasure for us just to 
register and welcome you as new representative of CHIN in CRM-SIG! We 
are looking forward to your participation in our discussions, virtual 
and physical meetings, to learn more about and from your projects, and 
to take up your contributions.

With best wishes,
