It has been a sincere honor to serve as CTS president for the past year. 2017
has been an important year for CTS on nearly every major level. We began the
year very challenged financially due to changes in the ABG proficiency testing
program and overhead costs beyond our financial ability. Thanks to our adminis-
trative and professional leadership, we enter 2018 significantly more stable financially, and look for- ward to further improvement in serving CTS members and our mission in 2018.
