ASN President's Column: Strategic Goals for 2019

I am honored to be ASN President in 2019 and excited by the possibilities for this year. ASN developed and launched a 5-year strategic plan in 2016. Significant progress has been made on all strategic goals, and these remain as the main issues ASN will need to address over the course of the next year. In 2019, I’d like to see ASN focus on accomplishing three broad goals that will continue the society’s momentum and help accomplish the strategic plan by the end of 2020.
