It was great seeing many of you at the SSA Meeting in Florida. For those of you who were unable to attend the SSA General Business meeting on October 2, it is my pleasure to introduce our new Executive Director Javier Clavere. From the bottom of my heart, I am thankful to Javier for his willingness to serve in this capacity. This volunteer position bears numerous tasks and administrative responsibilities. I am fully committed to working with Javier, in an advisory capacity, through a transition period ending January 15, 2017. I am confident Javier will do a wonderful job serving our Society.
