This is an exciting time for me. My tenure as JAWRA Editor-in-Chief (EIC) has begun. After only a few days on the job, all the reasons that I wanted to be EIC have been positively reinforced. Shaped by Ken Lanfear’s excellent leadership for nearly a decade, JAWRA is in great shape. We have a talented group of associate editors, a dedicated managing editor, and the strong support of a wonderful organization. The quality of the journal article submissions is impressive. I thank Ken for building JAWRA into a journal that addresses the needs of AWRA and the water resources community as a whole and for the gracious support he provided to me as I prepared to assume the role of EIC.
