"I always appreciate talking with colleagues about common interests, learning about their projects and sharing about ours, also discussing the burning issues of our time. I imagine all of these things taking place at CIMAM gatherings. These discussions as well as the personal relationships that come from sharing such group experiences, I imagine, will contribute to my development over the years. I am also eager to meet some of CIMAM's younger members, as I think it would be very inspiring."
