We are so happy to have met everyone who attended the 2023 annual conference in Charleston, SC. The workshops were informative. The panels and presentations were insightful. The conversations and camaraderie were memories made to last for time to come. Big thank-you to the local host, R. J. Lambert and the Medical University of South Carolina, and the program chairs, Russell Kirkscey (Penn State Harrisburg) and Mitchell Ogden (UW-Stout) for their leadership in organizing this year’s conference. Thanks also to the executive committee for support.
We want to congratulate, again, the winners of various awards given out at the Saturday afternoon business meeting. Please join us in thanking these individuals for their contributions to the field and profession.
