Fall 2014 – Letter From the Editors

Lyonette Louis-JacquesDear colleagues,

Yes indeed, there have been some changes around here at the CALL Bulletin! We are delighted to unveil our new online format, which promises to make your contributions easier to find and link to, in a display that we hope you will find attractive, all at a lower cost for our membership.

We’re grateful to Emily Barney and Debbie Ginsberg of Chicago-Kent, Kevin McClurewho brought a lot of brainstorming and hard work to this transition. The design you’re viewing owes much to their skill and vision, which they are now patiently working to pass along to your humble editors. We also appreciate the willingness of the CALL Board to fearlessly travel this road with us, even in those times when we weren’t always able to show them exactly where we thought we were going. Finally, we bid thanks and a fond farewell to Mary Chase, our cheerful collaborator in bringing the CALL Bulletin to press for the past several years in our previous format.
