If you hadn’t already heard, after being with BNP Media for 22 years, this will be my last issue of ASI. Fresh out of college, I started out as associate editor of ASI and our sister publication, Paint & Coatings Industry. Over the years, I've come to consider so many of you to be like family—and those various trade shows, conferences, expositions, and company visits we attend to be like little reunions. I’m saddened to be saying goodbye.

A big, hearty thank you goes out to all of you who have answered my requests, whether it was for an article; for clarification in said article or our need for higher-resolution images or figures; for participation in various interviews or roundtables; or even to carve out a few minutes to sit down with me for an interview at an event. You made my job easier—and made our editorial content even better. I leave the magazine in the very capable hands of Susan Sutton, beginning with the June issue.

I’m excited about the possibility of moving into a new direction in the marketing and communications field. If you’d like to reach out or to keep in contact, please feel free to connect with me on LinkedIn—I’m at www.linkedin.com/in/teresamc.
