2019 Annual Review & 2020 Outlook

Comments from the Executive Director

The Comments which follow were intended to be presented at a USGLSA Annual Meeting of Members gathering on March 25, 2020, in Chicago. However, as with most every other event which was planned for that time period, COVID-19 had its way and the Chicago Meeting was cancelled.

Instead, the Meeting was held still on March 25, but by telephone conference call. This Report, provided to the Members prior to the call, was mercifully not read word for word by me during the call, but points were discussed in general. The full text (with a few small post-meeting edits) is respectfully presented below.
