The Chicago Statistical Education meetings look great, with something for everyone. Make your plans to attend now, if you haven't already.

A couple of the new initiatives being highlighted this year will be of particular interest to those of us in the field of statistical education, because they'll be bringing ASA's ideas to much broader groups than our current members. One initiative is a practical plan to get the appropriate ASA journals (Chance and STATS) into the public schools. We'll hear more about the details of this in August. The second is the ASA Web page. We are beginning to have enough of the supporting pages up that browsers can obtain quite a lot of information that would have been difficult to obtain as quickly before.

I hope to see many of you in Chicago.
