Timely, important updates for mathematics teacher educators.

This issue includes a new video feature, an introduction from AMTE's President, Michael Steele.  Also, the President's message suggests that this is a time for renewal through service to AMTE. There are announcements of the newly elected members of the AMTE board and the 2020 AMTE Awards recipients.  There is information on our affiliates, great news from the STaR program, a very interesting article presenting results of a national survey regarding the current state of mathematics education, and the Emerging Issues Committee invites us to attend their advocacy breakfast. In addition, there is important information about the 2020 Annual Conference.
