First, I want to wish you all a very happy New Year filled with great health, prosperity, and innovation! We have accomplished and progressed so much this past year and next year there will be so many exciting initiatives in store for our organization and members.
I would like to start the new year by encouraging all members to take the AND’s “Pledge of Professional Civility,” an initiative that aims to foster community and constructive discourse among peers. It is essentially a voluntary, public commitment to the civil treatment of peers, including those we do not agree with. Let’s vow to support one another, agree to disagree, and be respectful and open to learning from one another. Let’s remember to use the AND’s code of ethics as a guide for the behavior of everyone in our profession.
