Erin Reyes

All of our committees have been working very hard, as you can see by the updates in this and previous newsletters. I want to especially acknowledge the Education and Standards Committee, particularly the Chair of the Meetings subcommittee, Mike de Riesthal, for their time and effort in getting the 2019 Annual Scientific Meeting program in place so early. They have put together another really excellent program. You should have received an email about it, and you can also find the information on our webpage. I hope that many of you are planning to attend.
