Can it really be a new year already? Thanks to everyone for their contributions. It was especially nice to hear from our new Interest Groups. We hope to be able to report on all 13 (PLUS?) in the post-Midwinter issue. The deadline for that issue will be February 29th. If you would like to submit something, please drop me a note so that we can save room for it! You can contact me at

Interface is here to communicate the diversity among the various groups that make up ASCLA. Nothing is more diverse that all of those new interest groups. We can also tell from some of the comments to articles that Interface is being read outside of our member community. Remember to use Interface to spread the word about the exciting things happened at your organizations.
