WELL DONE!!! And welcome to you too as a new member of the IAS, and for the
fantastic potential and future that you have in store for all of us! You
have no idea how excited and happy that so many of us are to have someone of
your caliber being our Newsletter Editor. You are the shot in the arm that
this society has needed for a good long time. Please do continue to let us
all know how we can help you.
Best regards, Scott
