Dr. Kim: As I was taking on my role as president, I never imag- ined I'd face the immediate challenges that our organization had to face, but I was prepared to take on that challenge. I was thankful to have a strong and supportive organization in terms of the ASCRS staff, executive director, Executive Committee, and Governing Board to help nav- igate through the difficulties.
