Thank you to all the readers that noticed there wasn’t a TTI column in January. For those people that submitted announcements for the January issue, I have included them in this issue. Please keep the announcements coming! In this economic climate it is always good to read good news. And you don’t have to have a new job to include your contact information in this column. So if you want people to know how to find you, just send me an announcement.

On the Move...
