As we approach the end of 2020, I have been reflecting on the many challenges and growth we have seen this year. The COVID-19 pandemic has brought hardship to many people around the world. But instead of giving up and giving in, people have come together to find solutions to the adversities they are facing. This includes our own Society. I am very proud of how our Society has adapted to meet this year’s challenges through collaboration, dedication, and ingenuity. This year has truly underscored the resourcefulness of our members and the importance of flexibility.
