But we leave footsteps of the past year behind us and usher in a new year. Snow is endings and new beginnings. So it is with this issue of the CALL Bulletin. In the following articles, we welcome new colleagues, discuss new experiences, celebrate leadership, and mourn the passing of a dear colleague. Continue reading Winter 2014 Editors’ Letter
