Letter from the Immediate Past Chair
For the past 6 years, I have been the chair of the ASLA International Practice PPN. I have enjoyed it immensely. I have faithfully made sure we published a newsletter at least once a year, featuring numerous countries and projects from around the world including Canada, China, Egypt, Germany, United Kingdom, Portugal, Norway, France, Sweden, Croatia, Cameroon, Kenya, USA, Serbia, Bulgaria, Malta, Russia, Estonia, and Indonesia.

Letter from Incoming (Current) Chair
As the incoming International Practice PPN Chair, I would first of all like to thank Professor Jon Burley for his hard work and dedication to ASLA.  Certainly the inquisitive interest he has displayed with all the attendees at the PPN meetings is something that I will certainly want to emulate.

I certainly want to keep him in the fold as my mentor.
