For the past several conferences ACMS has honored long-standing members at the conclusion of its Friday evening banquet. This year two tributes were given to those who, though “absent from the body,” we trust are now “present with the Lord,” namely, Alice Iverson and Gene Chase. In addition, a special tribute was prepared for Robert Brabenec, founder of ACMS, who was present at the conference, but who had recently stepped down from his role of Executive Secretary. A lecture series was also created in Bob’s honor. This section contains the remarks that were prepared for Alice, Gene, and Bob, followed by a brief description of the Brabenec Lectureship.
