Presidentís Message - Grayson (Bill) Marshall

“Advocacy: goals are dreams we work for.” (Grayson W. Marshall, Jr.)

Firstly, I would like to thank all those who have supported me and made this great opportunity to serve as president of AADR possible. In particular I would like to thank my wife, Sally, who is also my dearest colleague, and my sons, Trey and Jon, as well as all of my students and colleagues who have formed my professional network. We have been active in IADR and AADR for the past 30 years, and much of my network has developed as a direct result of these Associations.
