Message from NCECA President, Keith Williams

Hello fellow NCECA members,

It's the time of year when everyone on Board and staff are polishing
conference preparations. With many details being finalized we are all
thrilled with what we have to offer. I am reminded of what an
impressive international organization we are. I think we will have a
record number of international attendees with us in Seattle, and I
know all be embraced and welcomed. I am also mindful at this time of
the members who won't be able to attend. Of course they will be
missed at the sessions and the conversation spots. I am so pleased
that NCECA now offers its members content and opportunities,
including some conference programming via podcast year-round. It is
part of our strategic priorities to serve our members beyond the
conference and provide a sense of value even in years when they can't atten=

To our friends whom we will miss in Seattle, please take advantage of
our educational opportunities by maintaining your NCECA membership
over the course of the year.

With feelings of great shared energy,

Keith J. Williams, President
