Please join me in congratulating Roberto and thanking the outgoing Chairman, Chi-Sing Man from the University of Kentucky, for his strong leadership that kept the society afloat over the last five years. Among important developments that Chi-Sing initiated and oversaw during his term are the revision of the society's bylaws and addition of new members to the Selection Committee.
