In Memoriam: André Vanoli (1930-2022), IARIW President 1977-1979

André was a long-standing and enthusiastic member of the IARIW. He made many contributions to the international development of national accounting throughout his professional career. The Association benefitted from his leadership, his unfailing participation in the General Conference from 1966 to 2018, and his knowledge and insights. He will be greatly missed. For more on his life and professional contributions, see the obituary by Francois Lequiller in the June 2022 issue of the Review of Income and Wealth (https://onlinelibrary.wiley.com/doi/full/10.1111/roiw.12586).
