Your Publications Committee co-chairs and hardworking members are proud and honored to receive the award. The 2021-22 co-chairs would like to give a special thank you to former committee co-chairs Veronique Van Gheem and Maria-Vittoria "Giugi" Carminati, as well as then-committee member Jessie Pellant, for bringing The 1891 to life and to our amazing past-President Cat Shea for her support and leadership when the blog was just a blossoming idea. In honor of the award, Publications Committee Co-Chair, Carime Lee, has prepared a brief tutorial to show you some of the features of The 1891 blog site.
