Accepting his new role, Deschamps told attendees, "I'm pleased to serve now as the new chair and to get the opportunity to play a bigger role in this division, which I think we all agree is very important... It has proved to be a pretty strong and sustainable [group]. My message for you guys today [would be to] get involved. We're creating a lot of different task groups and subcommittees, and we have a lot of fantastic stuff that we are working on; we need good people and involvement. We're going to try and grow this division and bring it to another level, and I look forward to it."
