    This program is only a few years younger than I am, and it is amazing how it has managed to stay true to its original guiding principals while renewing its relevance with an embrace of new topics, technologies, and realities as they came to exist in the world. I hope my schedule continues to allow me to join the PON 40th Celebration as I have been enriched more by this program over the past 20 years than I had imagined possible, and I look forward to many more years ahead.
