From the Chair
Welcome to the Alcohol, Drugs & Tobacco website! The objective of this site is to increase the interaction of our members, communicate information that will help advance our field of study, and invite prospective members to join us in these efforts. This is your site and I encourage you to browse and learn more about our activities.
I am looking forward to seeing you at the upcoming ASA meetings in Boston! The annual meeting is a wonderful setting to network and spend time together. Come participate in our paper sessions, business meeting, and evening reception where we enjoy good food and drink while we honor our Junior Scholar, Senior Scholar, and Outstanding Student Paper Author awardees.
We are taking some important steps in the advancement of our section this year, and I thank our section officers and others who are working to make these things happen. Two initiatives of particular importance this year are the continued development of this website and the affiliation of a peer-reviewed journal with our section and ASA.
Alice Cepeda has put much effort into the website project. Duane McBride, Dale Chitwood, Andy Golub, Sheigla Murphy, Geoffrey Hunt, and Harold Lune have continued working on the Publications Committee to get our section affiliated with the Journal of Drug Issues. We owe special thanks goes to Carrie Oser who assembles and produces our newsletter and keeps us connected.
I invite you to send materials for inclusion in our website as well as recommendations on ways to improve it to Alice Cepeda (email@example.com).
