The first leg of the division's two-phase project to identify preferred fluency treatment outcomes and to determine how treatment efficacy data can be generated by the measurement of those treatment outcomes was successfully initiated at the Division's 4th Annual Leadership Conference held at the Westward Look Resort in Tucson, Arizona, April 30-May 3, 1997.
While the conference's major focus was on the sobering task of working for a consensus on what constitute preferred treatment outcomes from the perspectives of clients and their families, clinicians, third-party payers, and society itself, the 71 participants joined many Stuttering Foundation of America “family members” in a gala Stuttering Foundation of America's 50th Anniversary Celebration Dinner. Hosts Jane Fraser and Joe Fulcher provided us all—through slides, stories, and testimonials by many of the Foundations's extended family—with a delightfully amusing and frequently moving and nostalgic trip down memory lane. Malcolm Fraser, the Foundation's founder, whose passing this past year grieved all those who knew of his commitment to improving the quality of life for those who stutter, was frequently the subject of loving and revealing anecdotes. Malcolm Fraser's success in establishing a foundation that increasingly impacts positively on the daily lives of those who stutter is a continuing testament of an extraordinary visionary and humanitarian. The evening's festivities culminated in the presentation of the first Malcolm Fraser Award to Hugo Gregory, Charter Chair of the division's Steering Committee and longtime member of the foundation family.
