This is my first column as the SIG 1 coordinator because LaVae Hoffmann, our dedicated and tireless coordinator for the past three years, completed her term of service in 2014. We will miss LaVae and remain grateful for her many contributions to SIG 1 procedures and activities. I am very fortunate to have enthusiastic colleagues on the SIG 1 coordinating committee including two new members who join our committee this year. TJ Ragan will be serving as our Professional Development Manager (PDM), a newly designed SIG role. One of TJ's duties will be to serve on the Autism Spectrum Disorders planning committee for the 2015 ASHA convention. TJ's clinical interests are in language and literacy development and disorders in young children and collaborative models of service delivery. Our second new member, Nichole Mulvey, was elected to serve on the committee in the July elections (thanks to all who voted!). Nichole's clinical research interests focus on narrative development in preschool and early elementary children and the use of storybooks as an instructional tool. Our returning coordinating committee members include Kerry Howland who will serve as the assistant coordinator, Cathy Constable who continues in her role as the on-line coordinator, and Brenda Beverly who is the editor of SIG 1 Perspectives on Language Learning and Education. Susan Karr continues to support us from the ASHA office. As always, your SIG 1 coordinating committee is eager to hear your requests for future continuing education and Perspectives topics. Please do not hesitate to contact any one of us by email or to post your requests and questions on the SIG1 Community. We are here to serve you!
