report from Brian Striman, TS Chair

Hello TS Mates!

Use our website for most current TS-SIS news, now including many of the various 2014 chairs' reports, and soon a final draft of the Agenda for the TS-SIS business and awards meeting in San Antonio. Posted now so you know more of what's going on with your officers and all the work of the TS committees, and Advisory Groups, and Workings Groups, and Task Forces before you get there.

It's a one-stop-shop for everything you want to launch to that's TS related.

Our website is our main information vehicle, with TSLL right along side. The reports also will be appearing in the next great issue of TSLL (the September issue). Thank you Martin! Thank you Michael Maben and all the TSLL staff and contributing authors.


We have some of you who are Twitter lovers, please tweet stuff between yourselves via our TS Twitter account. It's one more tool we have to communicate. I'm not very active in tweetsland, but am our facebook group, TSLAWCHATS.

------------- So,

Will I miss being TS-SIS chair?
This office has had times when I was out of my comfort zone. It's been quite a ride.

Have I learned a lot and really got a great feel for all the work that goes on behind the scenes in our Section?
Yes, I Sure have.

I recommend that you volunteer to come on board, even if it's out of your comfort zone. Usually, we grow, when we go outside our comfort zone.

We've got some great new captains and crews on the dock with their bags waiting to board the Good Ship TS-SIS in the future. Let's go sailing! The most rewarding part of being Chair I think, is to witness all the busy busy professional colleagues, who, despite being.... did I say "busy?" ----- they say yes when asked; they say yes when filling out the annual TS-SIS survey.
