The Fall 2015 issue of Winds of Change comes off press in time for the 2015 National Conference. In addition to profiles of the keynote speakers and the winners of this year’s prestigious Professional Awards, you’ll find news and articles on a range of subjects, like a listing of summer opportunities, an article on fighting Ebola in the midst of the epidemic in West Africa, our anniversary remembrance of the role of an original AISES co-founder in the safe return of the imperiled Apollo 13 mission, and a tribute to Council of Elders members Horace and Andrea Axtell, who shared their wisdom with so many over the years. And as always there are profiles of members, news from around the AISES family, and career-building opportunities. Look for it in print and online at aises.org.
