Dear Colleagues,
Cleek
As Chair-Elect, I would like to see the section continue to grow through many avenues.  One area I hope to pursue is increased attendance at the annual meeting. I would like to include in the clinical section all members who treat obesity:  dietitians, exercise physiologists, psychologists.  We may wish to elect a lead member in each of these areas to promote growth and attendance.  Another area for discussion would be smaller roundtable gatherings during the annual meeting to promote exchange of ideas and further promote unity and identity for the clinical section.  These issues will be discussed at the annual meeting.  If you have other suggestions, please let me know.
