From the Editor

Posted By NAEP, Tuesday, April 18, 2017

For some reason, heading for the NAEP Annual Meeting this year seemed a little different.  Maybe it was because we had never met in Reno before and I had not been there in 20 years.  Or maybe it was because of the awkward airline connections required after having been spoiled by the service available flying out of New York City.  By the time I got to the opening reception Sunday night, it was winding down and the three-hour time difference was catching up with me.  I chatted with a few people I knew and several I didn’t, but I knew why they were there from their badges, then I went to bed.  Bright and early next morning, with the three-hour difference working in my favor, I walked into the continental breakfast, and whatever had felt a bit odd the night before quickly evaporated.

The meeting got underway with a challenging presentation by Venice Armour, the first female marine pilot. If anyone personified “We shall overcome,” she did.  And she did!  Then it was off to an ethics workshop and the meeting was back to normal. If you took advantage of the information-exchange breaks, there was virtually no dead time. I enjoyed the meeting from start to finish.  Next year we meet at Disney’s Contemporary Hotel in Orlando, Florida.  We have been there before and I’m looking forward to the drive.  I hope to see you there.
