VIDBE-Q Volume 62 Issue 2 said, "Alone we can do little; together we can do so much". Embracing that value, I will be sending out information about the many committees that our members can join and information on how to get more involved with CEC. Please be looking for this information very soon. Thank you to the board members and current committee members that have worked so tirelessly to make our division so great. I then reflected on the presentations. So many wonderful people presented great content to represent our division. I learned so much from so many of you. One drawback from being in leadership is the numerous outside meetings that I need to attend, but those sessions I could attend were great. We had some great attendance numbers this year. Thank you to all those who presented and shared their expertise. Many of those presenters have shared their knowledge in the pages of this edition of the "Q" so that those that could not attend convention can share in their knowledge and expertise. Finally, as I sat and thought about what to do next, a knot began to form in my stomach. We need to begin to plan for next year. Our next convention is in Tampa in February! That is less than a year away! Sessions have already been proposed, speakers are beginning to be lined up, and we need to begin our social planning. Elections and call for awards will happen much earlier this year due to this quick turnaround. Please be on the lookout for this important election and award nominations. The elections will also contain a special item on the ballot about our constitution. Tiffany Wild 7
