From the Editor
By Alicia Cline
Well, just when you thought 2020 couldn’t get any worse, I bring you terrible news. This is my last issue as editor of the LGAQ.
I wasn’t fired. Just want to make that clear.
I’ve had a good run, but 15 years is a long time. Or however long I’ve been doing this. I guess it’s been so much fun I lost track. But I can’t hog the publication—it’s time for someone else to have a turn. And good news, we found someone! I’m leaving you in great hands. Katie Houston of Austin, Texas has agreed to take on this very important and prestigious role. There is no doubt she is the best choice for this job—she has been actively involved with the Publications Committee for a long time and has always been a tremendous help in getting the issue out every quarter. I’m not leaving the committee, so I’ll still be around. I have a long list of projects I never had time to get around to, and I will do whatever I can to help Katie with the transition.
I can’t tell you how much I’ve appreciated this opportunity. I’ve had a chance to work with so many auditors. I’ve read every single article, learned a ton, and have been exposed to some great perspectives. I also made it through some major LGAQ changes—I bet you already forgot we even had a pdf version! I owe a big thanks to the Publications Committee members, especially Chair Jennifer Folliard. She has been so supportive as we’ve both faked our way through this.
Well, anyway. See ya, auditors.
