Dear Friends and Colleagues,
I began my term as SIMB President-elect at the end of the 2019 SIMB Annual Meeting in Washington D.C. as Jan Westpheling became SIMB President. This was the culmination of her decades-long history of service to the Society and I have never seen her so excited. Jan had been dreaming of this since she was seven years old.

That was my first RAFT® meeting, but I’ll guarantee it won’t be my last.
