First, I’d like to share with you some of the exciting things that are happening with the Division. As we move into our second decade, the Steering Committee (SC) decided to use the annual Leadership Conference to address the increased need for quality continuing education opportunities for members and nonmembers alike. This year’s conference offered an entirely new format: a Clinical Leadership Conference, with continuing education opportunities for participants no matter what their current clinical knowledge and skill levels—from beginner to advanced. The response from affiliates has been outstanding, from the dozens of quality proposals received in response to the “Call for Papers” to the generosity of the speakers in donating their time and knowledge to assist their colleagues, their profession, in improving the quality of services provided to our consumers and their families. The conference featured basic clinical tutorials and discussions on topics such as assessment, atypical fluency disorders, early intervention, electronic fluency aids, evidence-based practice, multicultural issues, support and self-help, and treatment efficacy. The meeting also included advanced clinical issues roundtables, with opportunities for sharing challenging clinical situations, case examples, and advanced tutorials. Attendees also participated in group discussion on specific clinical issues and formed consensus statements and directives for SC action. Next year, we will return to the traditional Conference format. The theme will be “Evidence-Based Practice.” I hope you’ll make plans to attend. We want to hear from everyone as we deal with some very challenging issues regarding efficacy and best practices.
