As my term as your President, we will be preparing for our Companion Meeting in Vancouver later this month. The 2017 USCAP companion meeting was a great success. I want to thank Robert Lorsbach and Michelle Paessler, as well as the excellent speakers, for putting on the program "An Update on Monocytic and Histiocytic Neoplasms and Disorders." The program nicely bridged both adult and pediatric disorders and was very well-received by the members. I also want to thank Lauren and Kyle for the 2017 SH-ASCP Companion Meeting entitled "B-cell lymphoproliferative disorders: What's new in diagnosis and classification" that was hero in Chicago. Again,
