Distinguished Papers Report

We (Jane Nell) worked and are working on revising the submission for distinguished papers and David Morse updated the website for an electronic submission process. (completed MHB)

The scoring rubrics are still being revised but those will be done very soon. (completed MHB)

As Vice President/President Elect, I am to review and make revisions as needed to the Operations Manual. Julie did a thorough revision but Jane Nell and I are working with her Operations Review committee to make any additional revisions. If there are other definite changes that you see need to be made, please let me know.
