From the Editor
Amy Burchfield, Editor
As brand new editor of the Newsletter, I would like to start by thanking all of you who contributed fantastic articles, pictures and ideas to this issue--my first stint as editor has been made immeasurably easier because of your thoughtful contributions. Special thanks goes to two individuals who helped and encouraged me. Former Newsletter editor, Annette Demers, passed on a well-ordered bundle of files to get me started and had answers to my questions along the way. Carmen Valero continues to serve as copy editor. She's assisted other editors before me and remains a terrific partner.
The October Newsletter issue traditionally reports the activities of the most recent Annual Meeting, and this issue is no exception. The SIS business meeting is recapped, along with reports from several of the committees and interest groups. Stephanie Burke Farne writes her first column as SIS chair. Linda Tashbook reports from San Antonio on the one-day European Union workshop. Additional pieces include two new member profiles, an article on the new GlobaLex, an introduction to our new blog, a summary of the war crimes conference held at American University's Washington College of Law, and even some FCIL SIS trivia to help us gear up for the centennial.
Our next Newsletter is only a few short months away. Please consider contributing an article, picture, or your suggestions for topics to be covered!
