I’m writing this letter just 1 week after returning from the American Speech-Language-Hearing Association (ASHA) convention in Boston. It was a hectic, crazy, and yet fruitful learning experience for me. I’m sure you can say the same if you attended. This was my 25th convention; I’m one of those nerdy guys who still likes to attend the convention and learn new information. Attending the convention also allows me to connect with friends I sometimes see only once a year. During convention this year, one of those friends inquired about my experiences as the new editor for this journal. “Do you like the position? Is it time consuming?” I really had no hesitation at all when providing my answers: yes and yes. Although the position can be demanding of one’s time, I am, thus far, very pleased and humbled that I was offered the opportunity to serve as editor (but feel free to ask me the same question 2 years from now). At this relatively early stage of my editorship, I’m fascinated with what I’m learning about new areas of study (at least for me), the editorial process, and my own writing skills. Indeed, every day I learn something new. I feel I’m in a constant state of continuing education.
