Last year's "Progress" issue, commemorating the 25th Anniversary of the Association, brought to light some excellent and informative ideas, with a common thread reflecting the power of a proactive and inspired community. This year's topic advances a step beyond to address how similar concepts of improvement are coming to fruition and translating into real-world products of activism, defined simply as "action for change.
