The SUSAN DANIELS AWARD will not be awarded this year. Unfortunately, the decision to create this award was made too late to enable the Board to collect sufficient nominations. The Board takes this action seriously and without and comment on the few nomination forms we have received. We hope to announce the creation of this award during the conference in October and, after considering participant comments about the conference, make our first award at our second national conference in 2017. Thanks to those who did take the time to submit nominations and we apologize for any inconvenience.
