This is my farewell column and a chance to say goodbye to all of my great colleagues and friends of Division 14. Even if I never met you face-to-face, I felt like I knew you in a very special way. My four years as Coordinator just flew by. Where did the time go? It has been a joy and honor to serve all of you in this manner. Thank you for an amazing four years and allowing me to stand side-by-side with you as we accomplished Division 14's many goals. I will never forget this experience! Division 14 members continue to be a strong group of individuals that are vibrant, excited and making a difference in their work and professional lives. The membership keeps growing and we continue to hear you and bring you the services that you request. I mentioned in the last issue of Perspectives that we had a wonderful response for the first CLD research conference in Albuquerque this summer with close to 100 participants! Not ones to let things cool, we are planning for the second research conference in May of 2010 in San Antonio, Texas! Mark your calendar and hang on to your Texas hats for another amazing three days. We will have more information after the first of the year. The Convention in Chicago is coming up, and there will be many opportunities to attend sessions sponsored by the Division and the convention committee. Dr. Maria Muñoz and Dr. Constance Qualls are providing us with information on bilingual and culturally diverse adults with dementia and other neurogenic communication disorders. This session is scheduled for Thursday, November 20th from 1:30-4:30. Please plan to attend the D14 Member's Meeting immediately following this session. If you are an academician and looking for ways to infuse multicultural issues into your courses, do not miss the panel with six university faculty members covering areas such as fluency, child language, voice, phonology, and bilingualism among others on Friday, November 21st from 8:00 - 10:00. This is not one to miss! Also, on Saturday morning, November 21st from 8:00 -10:00, Dr. Lilly Cheng and Nancy Lewis, will present a seminar on Cultural Due Diligence, bringing us a current and fresh perspective for looking at our work with culturally and linguistically diverse clients. Remember that as Division 14 member you will receive a registration discount for Thursday's short course with Muñoz and Qualls.
