The Rebecca welcome as the new Director of the alumni association. Jim has done an exemplary job for the IUSS Alumni Association during his stewardship. He, along with Jack, Russ and Ellis has brought the Assn. into the 21st Century. The Assn. is really the only venue where members of the IUSS Community can stay in touch with each other and offer condolences for members who have passed and those they left behind. Best of luck I am sure you are well up to the task. Ed
