Dear fellow members of the ISTFP,
My thought after reading the excellent newsletter that our Public Relations Committee has put together is: “Never Bored!”
Why are we never bored? The articles included in the newsletter remind us of:
- The increasing need for our services.
- The never-ending efforts of our members to meet the need.
- The challenge of sharing our knowledge and skills with colleagues from different parts of the world and from different cultures, and the opportunity to learn from them.
In addition, the newsletter, in its informal poll of what others think of TFP, tells us that we should reflect on some internal representations people outside our community have of TFP… and how to modify those representations when they contain inaccuracies. I found this poll very helpful since it contained information that I have been, to some extent, in denial of (like everyone, I have my defenses).
