Yanick Verkerk ♱
Yanick passed away in February 2020 after a long period of sickness. He had been one of the earliest proponents of setting up an alumni association and chaired the alumni committee while we were working on setting up UCTAA. He was one of the founding board members of UCTAA and stayed an active member of the board until shortly before his death. His responsibilities included event planning (jointly with Robin) and acting as a liaison with ATLAS (jointly with Sarah). He is sorely missed.
