GREETINGS FROM ROCHELLE ARMS, CHAIR
Dear Members and Friends of the International Section,
It was wonderful to see some of you in New Orleans this year. We’ll soon direct you to updates on our section’s website. I know Walter is now Immediate Past Chair in title, but we are not letting him go away. He will thankfully remain active in our leadership and continues to maintain the section’s website. For the time being, if you’re on Facebook, take a look at our page (thanks to Hriday Sarma in India who started it for us): http://www.facebook.com/groups/333588380064372/ . Some conference photos are already up there.
Along with Mary Damianakis, co-chair of the International Section this year, I look forward to strengthening and expanding our section in ways that will be useful to you all. Here are our goals for 2012-2013:

Rochelle Arms is now our fearless leader, and I am sure she will do wonderful things for our Section. I plan to give her my full support, and I trust all of you will do the same.
