This is my final issue of Leader Today as Managing Editor. Leader Today was born in 2015 when it replaced Leaven as LLLI’s information journal for Leaders and I hope it has been an interesting and useful resource. I would like to give a very special thank you to the Leader Today Editorial Review Board past and present; Toshi Jolliffe, Fran Dereszynski, Juanita Watt, Mary Lofton, Judith Gibel, and Priscilla Stothers, and to all my regular contributing editors over the past seven years; Mary Francell, Cindy Garrison, Linda Wieser, Annette Green, Rachel Brown Kirkland, Kelly Durbin, and Anna Burbidge.
