Doug is also an emeritus professor of psychology at CCSU who has been unable to retire successfully for over 10 years.  Dr. Wickersham III is a retired physician who enjoys volunteering and traveling, and his favorite ice cream which is “Adirondack Bear Claw”.  

Though we are disappointed that we won’t be able to get together this year again in person for our NCAAA Annual Meeting, we’d like to take this opportunity to thank these folks for their time, their support, their perseverance and their patience during this especially dynamic year.  We hope you will join us for our 2021 NCAAA Virtual Annual Meeting on Wednesday, March 31st, from 8:30am-10:00am.  Click on NCAAA Virtual Annual Meeting in sentence above for the flyer.
