Dear readers,

Since 2014, Connections has been published six times a year. I am proud of the high quality and creativity that has characterized this publication, and am grateful to Associate Director of Communications, Julie Murray, for being chiefly responsible for this fine product.

However, the cost of printing and distribution of Connections is high. Therefore, I have made the painful decision to reduce the number of editions from six to two, annually. I trust that you will continue to read Connections, and as many of you have done, to contribute stories to it. Thank you for your encouragement and your support.
