Perspective: 2009—A Year of Opportunity for RAPS
Posted 01 January 2009 | By
I am writing this article at the request of the RAPS Board of Editors as the incoming chairman of the society's Board of Directors. They have asked me to give a forward look to 2009. I must admit to some trepidation since the editorial process means this article is being composed in early November 2008 for publication in January 2009. If this past year has taught us anything, it is that events can change very rapidly. What appears certain one moment can be radically changed in the next. One thing is clear, however; the regulatory profession is going to have an increasingly important role to play in the challenging environment of 2009. As Sir Winston Churchill said "It is the truly successful who seek opportunities from challenges."
