President’s Corner
It seems like the new year is off and running at ninety miles an hour and I am trying to hang
on. It seems like everyone I talk to is feeling the same. In just a few weeks our annual
meeting will be here. Based on the full hotel room block and the great program it seems like
everyone is glad to be going to New Orleans. I have enjoyed many trips to New Orleans over
the years and it remains one of my favorite places to go. I look forward to visiting with you

I think you’ll agree that we have an excellent program of papers and presentations this year.
That is a credit to all of you who submitted some of your great work. I am always amazed at
the great work in which our members are involved. Any association like the SAEA is a
success because of the members who volunteer their time and participate in the meeting. I
especially want to thank the SAEA Directors Chris Boyer, Rebekka Dudensing, and Mallory
Vestal for all their work over the past year. Much of the success of our meeting is due to their
tireless efforts from getting the proposal submissions together and reviewed to the nuts and
bolts of the equipment in meeting rooms. I hope when you see them you will thank them in

Best wishes to all of you for a successful new year!

David Anderson, SAEA President
