President's Message  

Dear Attendees: 

Welcome back to Baltimore for the ARO MidWinter Meeting. The Baltimore Waterfront Marriott has been a comfortable venue for us in the past, and we're looking forward to another great meeting in 2013. This is a special year for the ARO -- the 40th anniversary of the association. Trivia fans will note that this is only the 36th MidWinter Meeting, but the meetings began some years after the ARO was founded. We'll have a few reminiscences from the podium after the Awards meeting on Monday, and we all can share our own tall tales in the reception afterwards.

Think about getting more involved in the ARO organization. There are many opportunities to serve on committees. The new committee members will be appointed shortly after the MidWinter Meeting by the new president, who will be Jay Rubinstein. If you are interested in serving on a committee, please indicate your interest on the post-meeting questionnaire. Also, consider speaking with or dropping an email to Jay or the chair of the committee of your choice.

Finally, don't miss a chance to let down your hair at the Hair Ball Tuesday evening with the popular band, Rollex. Here's a chance to see a side of your colleagues that you might have missed at the poster sessions. 

I thank you for the opportunity to serve the ARO as President this past year, and I wish you all a very stimulating and enjoyable conference.

John C. Middlebrooks 
ARO President, 2012-2013
