This is my last column as your President. I want to say how honored I am to have been the President of the American Society for Surgery of the Hand during the past year. We have endeavored to increase the value of your society to all members by a variety of initiatives. These include surveying the members for their wants and needs and attempting to integrate these into the society, the elimination of programs which are no longer of value, and increasing educational opportunities. I hope you see you all at the Annual Meeting next week in San Francisco.
Thank you for this honor; it was privilege to serve you.
