I want to apologize to all Division 4 affiliates for the late arrival of this issue. Due to some changes in procedures, it took longer than usual to get all of our copy compiled. But, I believe I now have a streamlined “system” in place to accommodate the changes, so delays should no longer be a problem.
In October, I was fortunate enough to join the Division 4 Steering Committee at their face-to-face meeting at the National Office. I have long been aware of the hard work that the Steering Committee members put in, but I was impressed and amazed by the number of things that were accomplished by the Steering Committee in less than 2 days. Gene Cooper, Nan Bernstein Ratner, Walt Manning, Jennifer Watson, and Woody Starkweather have been the only Steering Committee members I have known since taking over as Editor in January of 1997. This group was responsible for the drafting of the “Specialty Commission on Fluency Disorders Manual” and served as the “Founding Specialty Commission on Fluency Disorders.” Their efforts on behalf of the division have resulted in an efficient mechanism for the application procedures for the Inaugural Cadre of Fluency Specialists and have provided the foundation for long-term success of the Specialty Recognition process. As you know, Gene and Walt’s terms on the Steering Committee expired in December, and they have been replaced by Sister Charleen Bloom and Larry Molt. I want to express my thanks to Gene and Walt for all of their help and support over the past 3 years. I am confident that Sister Char and Larry will do a great job on the Steering Committee. I think that sometimes the Steering Committee’s efforts are overlooked by Division 4 affiliates, perhaps because so much of what the Steering Committee does occurs behind the scenes. These folks are extremely hard workers.
