6 S P R I N G 2 0 1 9 C A S Q U A R T E R L Y After an awards show that was nothing short of spectacular, we present to you an issue dedicated to this year's winners. Not only do these highlighted interviews offer technical and creative insight, but they offer a snapshot of our industry and our accomplishments as artists and craftspeople. This is also the issue of our CAS Quarterly that involves the most work from the most volunteers every year. So, I send a huge congratulations to all of our winners and award recipients and a massive thank you to our generous volunteer contributors! All of you lift us up as a community through your hard work and dedication. I am also happy to report that our new members of the Board of Directors are settling in and you are well-represented by community-minded professionals who are eager to serve. We welcome Steve Venezia CAS as a member of our Executive Committee as our Treasurer. We also welcome Amanda Beggs CAS and Mary Ellis CAS as representatives of production, and Onnalee Blank CAS and, Past President Mike Minkler CAS as post representatives. Additionally, your Quarterly will soon be headed up by Matt Foglia CAS, who will move up from his co-editor position of 12 years and become our new editor. Matt will be assisted by our Chair of the Publishing Committee, Stephen Tibbo CAS, who will drive the direction of creative content collecting your story ideas and providing volunteer opportunities in the CAS Quarterly. They will work hard in the creation of this publication to highlight who you are, celebrate your successes, and share your adventures. If you have a story to tell or a desire to explore an aspect of our industry, please reach out. We are actively expanding opportunities to participate in the CAS by creating additional volunteer opportunities and membership activities. We encourage you to enrich your experience by getting more involved and communicating what we can do to better serve you. Our greatest value as an organization is our members and we want to empower you to let yourself be known, to get to know one another, and to get the greatest value possible from your membership.
