We are saddened to inform you our dear friend and colleague Fons van de Vijver passed away unexpectedly on Saturday, June 1st, 2019. Our hearts and our thoughts are with his family and friends at this difficult time. Fons was an unwavering supporter of the importance of psychological assessment and cross-cultural research and especially to its commitment to educating students and fostering professional collaborations. Fons served the EAPA in many capacities, including President, and recently as Past-President. Fons hard work, kind manner, thoughtful counsel and smile will be long remembered in the EAPA. He will be dearly missed. Please send your best wishes to his family and friends.
The EAPA will publish an obituary in the next issue of the European Journal of Psychological Assessment on his remembrance.
