Embracing Change: NACA Magazine Transitions to Biannual Issues and Bids Farewell to Janet Conner
In a significant shift reflecting our commitment to quality content and strategic planning, the National Animal Care and Control Association (NACA) is excited to announce that our esteemed NACA magazine will now be published biannually, in the spring and fall starting in 2024.
This transition marks a new chapter for our organization, allowing us to focus on delivering even more impactful and thought-provoking content in each issue. We believe this shift will better serve our readers and align with the evolving needs of our community.
Accompanying this change is a bittersweet farewell to Janet Conner, who has been the heart and soul of the NACA magazine for the past 18 years. Janet has weathered the storms and celebrated the triumphs with unwavering dedication, leaving an indelible mark on our organization. Her energy, creativity, and tireless efforts have enriched the magazine and, in turn, the entire NACA community.
We cannot thank Janet enough for her passion, commitment, and the incredible work she has done to elevate the NACA magazine. Her editorial leadership has been instrumental in shaping the publication into a valuable resource for animal care and control professionals across the country.
As we bid farewell to Janet, we also express our deepest gratitude for the invaluable contributions she has made during her tenure. The NACA magazine owes much of its success to her vision, and we wish her all the best in her future endeavors.
Moving forward, we are excited about the opportunities that lie ahead with our refreshed publishing schedule. We remain dedicated to providing timely, informative, and engaging content that continues to uphold the high standards set by Janet.
To our readers, supporters, and the entire NACA community, we appreciate your understanding and look forward to the continued journey together. Here’s to the next chapter of the NACA magazine and the legacy left by Janet Conner.
