SSPC heads into a new era with a new president, new editor, and new members. I hope that the changes we are making are acceptable to those members who have been the lifeblood of the organization for many years and welcome feedback from everyone. If you would like to contribute to the newsletter via article or commentary, or have a suggestion for the newsletter or SSPC in general, we welcome your input!

I belong to several professional organizations, but SSPC remains one of my favorites for the inclusiveness, camaraderie, and diversity that its members and meetings have to offer. I hope that I can contribute in-kind and for many years to come. Many thanks to my friends and mentors in SSPC, most notably Liz Kramer, for their support, kindness, and guidance as an “infant” in SSPC.

I look forward to seeing everyone at the annual meeting in Toronto!
