As the new president, I am only too well aware that my predecessors have set a very high bar for future programs. I shall do my best to clear that bar, and I urge all of you to mark your calendars now for the fall 2018 meeting in the Gibson Room of Cocke Hall at the University of Virginia on September 29th and for the spring 2019 meeting at Randolph-Macon College on May 4, 2019  . Also, while you have your calendars in hand, do not forget that the Foreign Language Association of Virginia will be meeting in Williamsburg, October 4-6, 2018, and the Classical Association of the Middle West and South— Southern Section will be meeting in Winston-Salem, North Carolina, October 18-20, 2018.

May is a time for renewal and change in nature and in the CAV. Not only is Mark Keith now assuming the duties of “Immediate Past President” while I take up the presidency of the association, but we welcome Patty Lister as the new vice president and Rachel Caudill as the new newsletter editor—this is Rachel’s inaugural issue. If you, too, gentle reader, would like to become more involved in the running of the association, please drop me a line. There is often a space on an appointed committee that needs to be filled, and I will also gladly pass along your name to the Nominating Committee (which consists of the Immediate Past President and the  two Members-at-Large). Remember, the Classical Association of Virginia needs you to help keep Classics strong in the Old Dominion.

Ex animo,
Liane Houghtalin
