As STEP celebrates its 30th anniversary, we thought it appropriate to also celebrate the 30th STEP member, Richard Pease TEP. In 1992, Richard was one of 19 members who helped form STEP’s first international branch in Geneva, Switzerland. Since then, he has been heavily involved in the Society, becoming worldwide Chair of STEP in 2006.
