Brief message from Lyndon Storey

"Welcome to this website and the President's page on it. I believe Humanism provides a foundation for people to live a fulfilling and meaningful life. It is crucial in our current age to develop a solid foundation for ethics, meaning, and community in life and humanism is the best and soundest foundation there is. Together we can build a more just and peaceful world inspired by the ethos and the principles of Humanism."

Lyndon Storey took office as President of CAHS on Monday 10 April, 2017. This message first appeared in issue 126 of Australian Humanist.

Its an honor to be elected President of the Council of Australian Humanist Societies and to be given such an opportunity to contribute to organised Humanism in Australia. I will do my best to be worthy of the role.

One of the most appealing things about Humanism is that it is a source of hope.
