Dear OMEA Members:
The 2017/2018 Winter issue of Triad is now available for your consumption. This is a very exciting issue with some great content in all areas. As is the tradition, the issue contains a great preview of our upcoming Professional Development Conference.

I challenge you to take some time out of your busy schedules and give Triad a read. It is accessible right HERE. If your device allows, you can read it right from your computer desktop. You also have the ability to download it as a PDF file and read it on a tablet or other mobile device. You can even print it if you desire. We are continuing to examine improvements for the means of delivering a meaningful professional journal. I hope that we can encourage you to be avid readers and help you feel comfortable in the ways that you can access and digest it.
