As I write these lines, you have already received the June issue of Water Quality Products and many of you have learned about Wendi Hope Bishop’s decision to pursue a new life in Tennessee. During the last month,
I have anxiously anticipated the opportunity to introduce myself.
Prior to being named the new editor of Water Quality Products, I joined Scranton Gillette Communications just over a year ago as an editorial assistant for Greenhouse Product News and Lawn & Garden Retailer. Though new to the horticulture industry, I quickly acclimated myself and began making editorial contributions to the publications. Soon after, I assumed the responsibility of associate editor for both publications contributing articles and researching some of the industry’s newest products.
The past year has been both very busy and eventful. I am determined to continue this path and dedicate my efforts to ensure that WQP offers the latest industry issues, innovative products and technology as well as helpful business and marketing information needed to run a successful water quality business.
In this month’s issue our main feature provides detailed information on high arsenic levels in private wells and its effects (See page 10). We also focus on the use of ultraviolet technology for air purification (See page 18) as well as other timely and helpful topics and products. In the months ahead, the magazine will continue to partner with industry experts and stay in touch with its readers to provide a good balance of reader-friendly, strong and credible editorial and helpful new product information.
As the editor of WQP, together with publisher Dennis Martyka and the creative support of production editor Dan Soltis, I will be working toward evolving the magazine by updating the graphical presentation and developing clear, unique editorial content written exclusively for WQP readers
I am excited about the opportunity to become a part of this industry and I look forward to meeting many of you at the upcoming IBWA show in Tampa, as well as other future industry events. I welcome all of you to share your thoughts and ideas with me regarding the future direction of WQP.
