Our observance of Carolina planning ‘s tenth anniversary, like that of most milestones. Is a bit of old and new; of looking behind and projecting ahead. The front and back covers of this issue contain design elements from Vol. 1 No. 1 of Carolina planning , most notably the “cp” that was introduced on the title page of that first issue and at the beginning of each article. We’ve reintroduced that symbol throughout this issue’s text to mark the ends of articles. New elements in this issue include some deviations from standard page format of the past few years.
The Carolina Planning index, found at the back of this issue, is provided as a reference for our readers, and points out the range and depth of planning topics we’ve addressed over the years.
Editors: Jane Hegenbarth, Susan Jones, and Ted Olin Harrison
