President's Message: New Leadership and Governance Plans
I started my one-year term as the 37th president of SBM about two months ago at our 2015 Annual Meeting in San Antonio, TX. I’m honored to be holding the position, and I’m excited about what we can accomplish together in the next year. Chief among my aims are a new leadership development institute primarily for mid-career members. I'll also focus on continued SBM governance work, continued engagement of policymakers, forging stronger ties with other professional organizations, and a fabulous 2016 Annual Meeting in Washington, DC.
