What must do is show how valuable we are, and in coming here you have made an important step toward that goal. You came here to learn—and in some cases to unlearn—and to be more professional, better skilled. A number of you have taken the trouble to become professionally certified as editors, and still want to develop further. On the last day of my editing class each semester, I quote Chaucer, "The lyf so short, the craft so long to lerne," "the life so short, the craft so long to learn." There is always more to learn, about the language, about the technology, about the skills we need to develop or refine. That is what you have been doing here, to share and compound learning in the sessions, at meals, in the conversations in the bar in the evenings. This is what you will be able to take away as you return home, better prepared to show what it means to be a qualified professional editor.
