Thanks to everyone who was able to join us in Seattle for Alliance 2016. It was a great opportunity to meet colleagues from around the world and share knowledge, questions and ideas. For your Advisory Group, it was time to say a big thank you to Larry Hill for his long service with the Advisory Group, and to welcome new members Tiffany Wendt and Deanne Wright. Carolien ten Oever, formerly Assistant Chair, steps into the Chair position.
