"Change is the law of life and those who look only to the past or present are certain to miss the future."
—John F. Kennedy
Howdy (again) bovine practitioners! With the selection of Dr. Fred Gingrich to join the AABP staff and succeed Dr. Gatz
Riddell as the AABP’s next Executive Vice President (EVP), I am honored to once again serve this extraordinary organization
as president, albeit for a brief 2 ½-month stint.
One of the priorities of my term as president in 2014-2015 was to ensure a successful initiation of the AABP EVP search and
selection process. Many months later, I am pleased to report that our organizational transition is well underway and is going
smoothly. From the outset, it was the intent of the AABP Board of Directors to keep our membership apprised of the key elements
and activities related to the search and selection of our next EVP. Now we are in the transition and I could not be more proud
of the role that so many have played in the process.
