From the Editor
Amy Burchfield, Editor
First I would like to apologize for the delay in publication of this issue of the Newsletter and I take full responsibility for it. Earlier this month, my father-in-law died of bone marrow cancer and I spent a good deal of time away from my normal activities. I greatly appreciate the understanding and support I've received from so many colleagues during this unhappy time.
A big thanks goes out to all of the authors who contributed great pieces for this winter issue. The articles are truly thoughtful, informative and practical. I love hearing about what's going on in the SIS, what educational opportunities and new products are out there, and what trips our colleagues have taken. I hope you enjoy reading this issue as much as I have.
Finally, another milestone is fast approaching. Did you realize that 2007 will mark the 20th anniversary of the FCIL Newsletter? That's certainly an impressive run for an SIS publication! I'd love to hear your ideas on putting together an anniversary issue. Please send your thoughts, ideas, and articles to me at email@example.com.
