Welcome to the summer 2018 issue of the S.E.C. Observer. In this issue, Brandon Sanders, S.E.C., 2018 president of the Society, recaps our recent meeting in Greenville and invites you to plan for our meeting in Detroit in September.

Education Foundation’s 2018 president, Lance Warner, S.E.C., reports on recent and upcoming courses.

The Society News Briefs section includes information about our upcoming meetings in Detroit, Michigan, and Fort Lauderdale, Florida, as well as preliminary information about our economic tour in Detroit and an excellent new course, “Exchange Magic,” which will be presented by Gary Vandenberg in November.
