Michel Van der Meiren
We greatly regret having to announce the death of Michel Van Der Meiren, the ICA webmaster.
Michel died suddenly and unexpectedly from a heart attack on March 24th 2020.

A full obituary will appear in the next Concertina World.
No funeral arrangements are known at present. There is a website for condolences:
