Dear Friends and Colleagues,
Many thanks to all of you for making the 43rdSSA Conference a very successful event. The quality of papers and presentations were very high and inspirational. Questions, answers, and comments were thoughtful, amicable, and graceful.
A special thank you to our local host and Executive Director Javier Clavere for his gracious hospitality and abundance of support. Those of us who have served in this capacity know well how much work goes into our annual conference. Certainly, Berea College and Boone Tavern Hotel were very charming venues for the various activities and events for our SSA this year.
I left Berea with gratitude to all friends and colleagues, optimism about the future of SSA, and excitement about our 44thSSA gathering next year. Stay tuned for the location announcement.
