I’m returning from a reinvigorating (and enjoyably warm) trip to Florida, where I got to connect with many AHA members one on one, and I’m thrilled to hear so many positive comments about Humanist Network News! You’ll soon be seeing some big changes coming up in 2013, including new regular features written by humanists, a newly designed website that allows you to better search for past HNN articles, and lots more. I’ve appreciated all the feedback received so far, and I look forward to implementing your best ideas to make HNN bigger and better!

If you have general comments or would like to write a full-length article (supporting or opposing gun control) for our next “Humanist Debate,” write to us at email@example.com.
