One of my Presidential themes this year is inclusion, and we have strived to provide our members with more opportunities to be included in all aspects of the Hand Society.  In addition to enhancing the Council Director application and eliminating any bias toward academics, the Identity Task Force, led by Steve Glickel, MD, has taken an additional step toward promoting transparency and openness in leadership selection.  I am pleased to announce that for the first time in ASSH history, we will open two positions on the Nominating Committee for nomination and election by you, our members.
