Meet JohnI think the most important thing to say in closing is that AAPT was involved throughout my career. I could not have had the success that I have experienced without the assistance and inspiration from my association with AAPT. Even in my retirement, I pick up new ideas at national meetings, which eventually find their way into my textbooks. Joining AAPT as a young professor was one of the best decisions in my life and I encourage all new physics educators to join the national AAPT. We have a wonderful opportunity for professional development in AAPT and we should spread the word, in order to get every physics teacher involved in some way.
