A Letter From Our President

Jenny Brown
ATA Section President

Greetings ATA Members and Colleagues,                             

Welcome to the 2023/2024 academic year!

First, thank you for giving me the opportunity to serve as your president this year. The ATA is an extraordinarily collegial group, and I feel privileged that it has been a significant part of my professional life since I was a PhD student at the University of Texas, 20-plus years ago. Over the years, I have seen the ATA change and evolve to better meet the needs of its members, but one thing remains the same ­– the ATA continues to be my primary professional home outside my own university.
