At the outset, I want to express my gratitude to the members of the Society for electing me to this position. I am keenly aware that serving as President of the Society is a trust that few of us are privileged to receive. I deeply appreciate that honor, and I sincerely hope that my efforts during the past year have advanced the interests of all members of the Society. Second, I would like to acknowledge the personal support I have received from so many of you. That support was evident from the time I first became Chair of the Scientific Program Committee in 1984, and has continued through the present time. Third, I would like to explain why I did not begin to prepare this address by reviewing the addresses of previous Presidents.
