By Meggan Olek This article is a part of the November/December 2017, Volume 29, Number 6, Audiology Today issue. First and foremost, I would like to acknowledge Doris Gordon, the current executive director of ACAE, who will be stepping down on December 31, 2017. Doris led the ACAE for almost 15 years with determination and a clear sense of purpose of promoting quality education through standards development and accreditation of audiology programs. Doris was an energetic and committed originator of ACAE. Her steadfast commitment to the preparation of highly competent and prepared clinicians for the audiology workforce elevated the profession. If you have come across Doris in your travels with ACAE, you know that she is a kind and smart professional who has demonstrated great passion and knowledge which ultimately lead to an accomplished ACAE. With a level of commitment comparable to her development and progress of ACAE, she has supported a successful transition plan for the ACAE operations to the American Academy of Audiology (the Academy).
