Member Highlight

“Like everyone else, I came to the website for the job ads and I stayed for the rest. As my career has progressed, I am finding the utility of all the useful information that the website and organization can provide—especially as my administrative obligations increase. The annual conference is one of the few that I never miss. I am always sure to get good feedback on my papers, learn about interesting new research and see old friends.” – Joseph Weinberg
