It seems as if our Annual Conference in Anchorage took place about a month ago, but it has been many months now since we returned home and my job as president of AJA began. Time seems to disappear and days become a blur when balancing the bench, AJA, and family. Your officers and Executive Committee have totally immersed themselves in revitalizing the AJA beginning with plans for a great educational and fun-filled annual conference in New Orleans in October. In January, the Executive Committee met for two days discussing our priorities and goals for this year and the future of our organization. Membership, as always, has been at the top of the discussion list for as long as I have been a member of AJA. Last year, the leadership and Board of Governors authorized the funding of a marketing campaign recently launched by a company called Marketing General. This professional marketing group is now conducting a targeted campaign for new members throughout the country.
