The President's Words

Published in Spring 2014 Perspectives Newsletter

  • Written by
    “The journey of a thousand miles begins with one step” - Lao Tze.  I think of the Society as a ship on a journey, albeit a ship much like those we would find during the very early years of maritime history, powered only by sails and operated by a crew working together efficiently to keep the ship afloat and set in the right direction. In such a ship, there are no paying passengers; each person on board has a specific duty which must be carried out diligently to keep the ship functioning properly, particularly when facing rough seas.  I believe this is very much true of our Society; each member has to be engaged in the operation of the Society in order to keep going and to survive.
