    I cannot believe my term as your 1993-94 NAPM president has come to an end. It seems like only yesterday I started on this journey. My wife, Joan, and I have truly enjoyed the gracious hospitality of so many people throughout the country. I am thoroughly convinced that the finest people in the world are members of our association. During my first Board of Directors meeting last May, we viewed Joel Barker's film "The Business of Paradigms," which set the stage for coping with change and thinking outside the box. My theme, "Managing Change Through Purchasing Empowerment," helped keep us focused on this change while building on the many significant accomplishments set by my predecessors. The president's term is really too short to effectively complete all the programs and initiatives, but we made a start. Some of the activities that were initiated this year included the following:
