Thank you to all of you that attended our annual meeting in Sacramento. For those of you who did not make it, you really missed a great time. Please do yourself a favor and don’t miss another one. This year was one of my favorite CSS meetings and I have heard from many attendees who felt the same. Planning for these meetings does take the support staff and our volunteer board a full year. The lion share of the work is done by Leigh Gallagher of Xenicus. She also puts together this newsletter. So please thank her, we would be in a lot of trouble without her steady hand.
