Editor’s Note


I am pleased to share the PCICS Spring 2024 Newsletter with updates from our new Vice President and from PCICS Committees. We would like to welcome our new committee co-chairs. There are lots of exciting things planned this year for PCICS members. Mark your calendars for our annual international conference which is being held in San Diego, California from November 14-17 this year. This venue will present a great opportunity for those located closer to the West Coast to attend the conference. As a member of the program planning committee, I feel confident saying that this year’s conference agenda will be as exciting and as stimulating as ever.

As the outgoing editor of the PCICS Newsletter, I have served on the Newsletter subcommittee for close to six years, with more than three of those as editor-in-chief, and have enjoyed every minute of it. I look forward to seeing all the great things to come with future newsletters, while supporting the Newsletter subcommittee as much as I can.
