Chair's Message

Celebrating 20 years, Working Towards — and Looking Forward to — Another 20

When I sat down to compose my Chair's Message, I was struck by an unfamiliar feeling: a loss for words. For those of you who know me, I usually have many things to say (in fact, probably more than people want to hear). But the truth is, our recent Chairs have made a lot of the points that first spring to mind when I consider the future of this organization. Those points cover related goals: expanding the Section with new members, especially young members; allowing new members to become a part of Section and make it their own; and, after celebrating 20 years, working towards — and looking forward to — another 20.
