As my term as ACM President draws to an end, I have been reflecting on my time serving our organization. It is easy to get lost in the day-to-day demands of this position, losing sight of what we have been able to accomplish during the past two years. We have accomplished a lot.

A clear highlight for me and for many was the 50th Turing celebration last year. Honoring our Turing Laureates and bringing together so many who have profoundly shaped our field, the event featured panels on key topics in computing, all of which can be viewed at https://www.acm.org/turing-award-50/video. There are many special moments to enjoy; moments that still make me smile when I think back.
