President’s Report

The results of the election of officers (Board of Directors, Committee Chairs and Section Officers) are in and I would like to thank all who offered their services to the society.

The transitions to the newly elected officers will occur at the Friday night Board of Directors meeting just before the annual meeting in San Diego.
