SNTS membership

I was elated this morning when I get an email informing me that I have been accepted into membership of the Studiorum Novi Testamenti Societas (= Society for New Testament Studies). I am most grateful to Dr. Rick Strelan and Prof. Michael Lattke for nominating me. It is a real priviledge to be a member. I had an absolute ball of a time as an invitee to the SNTS meeting in Aberdeen last year and I got to meet many European scholars that I do not normally cross paths with. Robert McL. Wilson told me that he and his wife used to plan their holidays around the annual SNTS meeting and when he thought about not going one year, his wife insisted they go or otherwise she would not get the chance to meet all of the friends she had made over the years. Next years meeting is in Lund, Sweden which would be nice to go to.

Congrats, Mike!

Well done lad. I'll resist the temptation to suggest an Aussie quota and you being the lucky Aussie this year. But the real reason you've been accepted is because you're quite brilliant.

So again, congrats!
