President's Message

May 1, 2018

Dear SRI Colleagues,

As you well know, the SRI Membership is the cornerstone on which we operate as a successful Society. Therefore, I would like to thank all of you who have renewed your membership dues, and would like to remind those of you who have not that the time is now upon us. In my year as President, I am committed to ensuring that another year of membership for all of you, means another year of unmatched benefits and the expansion of our global network.

In order to make all of this possible, I want to ensure that there is a direct line of communication open between me and the entirety of the membership. If there is anything that you wish to see done within the SRI, or anything that you believe SRI could be doing better, please send an email to with the email addressed to me. The SRI Staff, who manage this email address, will forward these messages onto me directly. There is so much to accomplish, and also so much room for growth within the SRI, and I want there to be a transparency and elevated level of communication.

Finally, I would like to bring everyone’s attention to the new feature that you will find in every 1st Alert issue. As I noted in my previous message, Paris was recently deemed the number one travel destination by Trip Advisor. We will be highlighting different elements of Paris that you will be able to experience when you attend the 2019 Annual Meeting. We are looking forward to a great program, and can’t wait to share more details.

SRI President, 2018-2019
