Letter from the Editor

By Daphna Edgar

The Boston Broadside is hot off the pressalbeit for the last time. You may have noticed a much thinner and less comprehensive print edition of the Boston Broadside over the last few issues, as more and more content has been appearing on the Broadside Online. The current issue is the final print edition of the Boston Broadside. With the September/October issue, the transition online will be complete, and the Broadside will be an online-only publication, completely integrated with the Chapter's Web site. While you will no longer receive the Broadside in your mailbox, we now have the opportunity to take advantage of a range of online technologies to communicate chapter information and members' professional activities.

The current issue is also my first as Managing Editor and I look forward to working with Society membership and Council leadership in keeping the Broadside a vibrant publication. Please feel free to contact me with content for the Broadside as well as any ideas you may have for the Broadside Online.

Many thanks go to Amy Anson for her dedication and commitment to the Broadside over the last three years and for making it an award-winning publication. Amy continues to be a valuable resource in helping my transition as editor. Best wishes to Amy in her future endeavors.
