I especially want to thank founding members Bob Joseph and Dave MacDougall for their input and knowledge. To all of you who have served as Regional Directors and Committee members, your help to SCALI cannot be minimized. Lastly, the work that goes into making your Journal a success is a tremendous under- taking. Ken and Donna have made our Journal as good as any in the country due to their hard work. I wish the very best to our incoming leaders and please volunteer to serve and assist them to continue keeping SCALI a great state Association.
