Ed Cherney and I were appointed Co- Editors-in-Chief of this Magazine with effect 1 January 2008. In mid-January we met with the outgoing Editor-in-Chief John Densley, at his home outside Toronto, and were instructed on many important aspects of the job, at the nuts-and-bolts level. I co-edited the May/June issue with John, Ed did likewise for the July/August issue, and thereafter we went solo, editing alternate issues. The appointment of two Co-Editors-in-Chief, rather than one Editor-in-Chief, was one of the concerns raised during the 2012 IEEE Periodicals Review and Advisory Committee (PRAC) five-yearly review of the Magazine, specifically that such an arrangement would lead to substantial duplication of editorial effort. We convinced the committee that this is not the case and that the arrangement offers the advantage of helping to ensure continuity of publication should one of the Co-Editors become incapacitated.
