As we look forward to next month's historic meeting of industry executives at the Investment Company Institute's "Our Foundation-Our Future" 50th Annual General Membership Meeting in Washington, D.C., we have some news of our own.

In answer to all of you who have been calling and e-mailing us to inquire about the fund operations awards, we will present the Money Management Executive 6th Annual 2008 Fund Operations Awards in in September.

This is good news for everyone who wants their work to be considered because you still have a long lead time to submit entries. Look for upcoming e-mail announcements and house ads giving details.

We hope this year's awards will turn out as great a success as years past.

Look, for instance, at 2005's First Place, Leadership honoree. That's none other than Stephen M. Wynne, who has just been promoted from PFPC President to Chief Executive Officer (see "Executive Moves," page six and accompanying thank-you letter from Mr. Wynne following the awards ceremony in 2005, below).

Best of luck to all those who enter this year's contest and see you next month in Washington.
