The first issue of Division 5’s Newsletter was published in August 1992. (See Index of articles in this Newsletter.) The first article, written by Dave Kuehn, was titled “Why Special Interest Divisions?” Nine years later, ASHA has grown from 67,000 to nearly 100,000 members. The Special Interest Divisions program has grown from a dream to 16 areas with approximately 10,000 individuals affiliated with one or more divisions. The question is still asked, but is now much easier to answer. The approximately 10,000 special interest division affiliates represent possibly the most involved of ASHA members. Each of the divisions is a rallying point for researchers, clinicians, educators, and administrators. Although each division is unique, there are many similarities. Some of the commonalties I see are involvement, energy and a drive to improve ASHA by enhancing research, clinical care, education, and administration. This energy is most evident at the annual meeting— this year in New Orleans. We hope you will be in New Orleans to contribute and share the energy.
