November 2022

President’s Message – Onyebuchi Arah

I can’t believe it’s November! This means we are more than halfway through the quarter or semester for those in academia or nearing the end of the work year. The holiday season and the end of another challenging year are fast approaching. Naturally, there are SER reasons for looking forward to Fall and the New Year. We are preparing for our 2023 Annual Meeting in Portland, Oregon, and the 2023 Mid-Year Meeting. Our plans are buoyed by the growth in size, diversity, and increasing global reach of our membership. Read More
