Dear members,

It is with great sadness that I am writing to you today. On June 5 Prof. Dr. Hans Westmeyer passed away. Prof. Westmeyer actively and passionately served as member of our executive committee from 1990-1999 and also as vice-president from 1992-1996. He also helped to make our flagship journal, the European Journal of Psychological Assessment, what it is today. Here he served as Editor in Chief.

Please allow me a personal note. I have known Hans Westmeyer for years. I always enjoyed his take on assessment and the complexity it entails. This perception of our field is still beneficial and should guide all of us in our work.

As president of our association and researcher in assessment, I am expressing my sincere and deep-felt condolences to Prof. Westmeyer’s friends and family.

Mit besten Grüßen / Kind regards,
Matthias Ziegler
