Letter from the President

Sally Widener

Greetings ABO Members:

 Let me begin this message by thanking my two Presidential predecessors, Lisa Victoravich and Donna Bobek Schmitt, for their hard work and vast institutional knowledge. I would also like to thank the incredible section members who volunteer their time and efforts in serving as officers, chairing committees, coordinating programs, organizing doctoral consortia, and doing a host of other myriad activities. You are all the heart and soul of the section and without you the Section as we know it would cease to be. So pat yourselves on the back and know that your efforts are genuinely appreciated and valued.
