Together with Adriana Prengler, our vice president, and Henk Jan Dalewijk, our Treasurer, I look forward to working with the IPA Board – and others who represent you, such as Society Presidents and regional leaders – to  benefit our profession and all IPA members. I’d like to give you an idea of what I have been up to since you elected me and how the vast amount I’ve learned as president-elect will focus my work over the next four years.
