Welcome Note from the EAA President
I am truly honored and humbled for this opportunity to serve as new President of the EAA. This position is both exciting and challenging. I will appreciate any comments, suggestions, and constructive criticisms as I attempt to learn the ropes. Our outgoing President, Edith Smit, deserves an enormous thank you for her tireless devotion to the EAA. Without her excellent leadership, the EAA would not have been the same.
One of my first efforts is to make sure that the EAA continues its growth path by expanding and deepening our presence in the world. While the EAA's membership is broad and loyal, we hope our global network can be strengthened through strategic alliances with different partners.
As your incoming President, I look forward to serving the EAA and its membership. I look forward to addressing whatever issues or obstacles that will confront us in the next two years.
I hope to see you again at the 14th ICORIA in London, 2015.
