Abstract

Editor's Summary

Taking on the reins as ASIS&T president for 2013, the author sets his sights on fulfilling and expanding upon previous presidents' initiatives. This year's efforts will focus on building strength through a more international membership, energizing student chapters to stimulate early professional involvement, broadening engagement in ASIS&T events from Annual Meetings to webinars and providing the most relevant and content-rich material. The role of the organization, its service to members and the sense of identity and community it engenders deserve examination. ASIS&T must reach out to other groups in the information sector but strive to realize its claim as the preeminent information society. Aligning with the growing iSchool movement may well be a step in that direction.
