June 2013

Dear CSE Members, Colleagues, and Friends,

Congratulations to the 2013 Program Committee, chaired by Tony Alves and Michael Friedman. We had great attendance and a very successful meeting.   We had almost 400 attendees and 13 countries were represented including: Canada, France, India, Japan, Korea, Mexico, Norway, Pakistan, Switzerland, Turkey, UK, Ukraine, and USA. From the opening reception, the keynote and plenary speakers, to the exhibit area, to the dynamic and engaging presentations, our 2013 meeting was a show-stopper.  Just a few hours into the CSE meeting and I was reminded why I find CSE so valuable: there are many others who deal with the same problems I have! This is, of course, oversimplifying things and perhaps a bit selfish, but please remember a main benefit of getting involved in CSE is that our members have a wealth of knowledge, experience, and information to offer.

Getting involved with CSE is a great networking opportunity and CSE has many of them, including committees: the editorial policy (never a dull phone call!), the education committee, the membership committee, or the program committee (maybe you have an idea for next year’s program; more on that next month!). Or, perhaps you have a great article idea for Science Editor. Join the CSE’s LinkedIn Group or Like us on Facebook! Do not hesitate to get involved-it’s the only way CSE stays relevant.

Kudos to our immediate past president, Ken Heideman.  He is a tough act to follow. For the upcoming year, we’re fortunate to continue to have a strong group of highly dedicated professionals who I am honored to lead (or try!).
