Dear Colleagues attending GCMAS,

In a few weeks, it will be my distinct pleasure to assume the role of
President of the Gait and Clinical Movement Analysis Society. As I look at
the list of my predecessors, I am both humbled by their achievements, and
encouraged by their company. I look forward to serving you and the needs of
GCMAS in the coming year.

A strength of GCMAS is the diversity of its clinical and technical members.
This is reflected in the nominations for President, which each year,
alternate between candidates in these two emphasis areas. As you know, I
bring technical skills to my "new job," so my attention is naturally drawn
to technical issues that affect our clinical work. With that in mind, I am
exploring the possibility of creating a "Technical Interest Group," that
would meet at the 2005 Annual Meeting in Portland. My goal is to provide a
forum in which technical issues can be discussed in more depth than is
typically possible in podium or poster presentations. However, the format
that such a meeting would take needs to be decided upon by interested GCMAS
members, both technical and clinical. To that end, Dr. Steven Stanhope has
graciously agreed to organize a planning meeting for the Technical Interest
Group at this year's Annual Meeting in Lexington KY, USA.

All interested GCMAS members and conference participants.

Planning Meeting for a new Technical Interest Group (TIG).
