I hope I have described to you tonight the phenomenon of a dynamic organization. VIMS is achieving its success and building its reputation, to a significant extent, through its commitment to the idea of a 'consortium approach', the seeds of which were sown by the founding group in the 1970s. To them, and especially to you, Phillip Law, I pay tribute for your vision, and express the hope that we are living up to your expectations.
