It is customary for the outgoing President of AIS to publish a report in CAIS on the activities during his or her tenure and on future directions for the organization. This is such a report. On becoming President I was fortunate in findinbg an organization in good shape thanks to the excellent work of my predecessors. Consequently, AIS faced no immediate crises and it was possible to focus on some longer term issues such attaining global reach for the organization, increasing member involvement, transparency, and the state of the discipline. One crisiss that did arise concerned AACSB curriculum standards; this crisis was successfully solved thanks to the rapid and dedicated reaction of a number of members. The longer term issues mentioned, together with the need to constantly enhance service to members, will probably continue to occupy the AIS leadership.
