Message from the Chair

Let’s talk about the future!

I’ve always been a bit of a Star Trek nerd, so when I think about “the future” my mind immediately warps forward several centuries to a time when humanity enjoys global peace and prosperity, and our best and bravest travel the galaxy in interstellar ships (boldly going where no one has gone before, of course). I love the exciting technology (warp drives! teleportation! holodecks with the safety off!), but it’s the indefatigably hopeful optimism of the show that makes it a favorite. That, and the teamwork. I’m a sucker for teamwork.

Luckily, I don’t have to travel far into a fictional future to find an amazing community of diverse people who, together, can accomplish any task…
