Our climate seems to be changing. Our supply of safe drinking water appears less secure that we thought. And the terrorist attacks on the United States on September 11, 2001 jolted us like no other recent act of mass violence. In times like these it’s easy to lose one’s bearings. Some have said that the FCCP has lost its bearings. I respectfully disagree. While the Federation’s membership may be down from its historic highs, it is still respectable. We have hundreds of members, from many different disciplines. Our programs, while perhaps limited in number, are well organized and always successful: witness the recent Fall Symposium, co-hosted with the medical section. We continue to come together to learn, to celebrate, to share, to dream, and to advocate. Our immediate past president, Ms. Roslyn Tsao, began the process of addressing the challenges facing the FCCP and the Board, under my presidency, is continuing that process. To that end we are streamlining our administration and renewing our commitment to the public good. Our renewal will succeed because the Foundation has relevance, just as it did when it was founded 26 years ago. For those of you who have been active in the affairs of the FCCP, I commend you and look forward to your continued participation and support. For those of you who have not been as active, I urge you to help us in renewing and building our Federation. Your help, comments and ideas are always appreciated. Please feel free to contact me or any other member of your board. In closing, on behalf of all on the Board of Directors, I wish you and your loved ones peace and goodwill during this Christmas season and good health and much happiness in the New Year.
