It is an honor and delight to address you for the first time as your new president. I am surrounded by a wonderful and supportive cadre of vice-presidents (Gerhard Kramer and Abbas El Gamal) as well as past presidents (Giuseppe Caire and Frank Kschischang). I would like to thank Giuseppe on behalf of the Society for his outstanding service and extend personal thanks to him for help with the transition. Giuseppe has guided the Society with warmth, sure judgment and energy. I am fortunate to have such a predecessor. Apart from a new president, our Society also has some other transitions of officers. Andrea Goldsmith transitions off the officer roster as senior past president
