SOUND BYTES - Dec 2018

President's Message

by Geoffrey L. Hunt, AAERT President


It’s that time of year again and I am writing my last President’s Message for 2018. At this exceptionally busy time of year, I hope that all of you will take the time to reflect on this year’s accomplishments and spend time with family and friends.
