From the President

Dear NERA Colleagues,
As I was considering what to include in my first President’s Message, I began to reflect on the various events that occurred in 2016. We suffered great losses including several beloved authors, pop icons, and activists such as Eliezer Wiesel, Umberto Eco, Harper Lee, Prince, Carrie Fisher, David Bowie, and Muhammad Ali. Our community also lost Roscoe Brown, NERA’s President in 1969 who was a war hero and one of the Tuskegee Airmen in World War II.
