     I think one accomplishment was convincing Mario Mikulincer and colleagues to hold a major IARR conference in Israel, which worked out very well, and putting more emphasis on helping authors whose native language is not English get their work into print in English-language journals.  I have now collaborated with several such authors myself (authors from Israel, Spain, Italy, Russia, Turkey, Mexico, China, and French Canada), including people in the early stages of their careers, and their work has been and still is being accepted by English-language journals.  Another part of the job, not unique to that one period, was keeping the two journals in an upward path toward optimal quality, and they have been improving (at least in my opinion) across the terms of several excellent editors.  My main goal, besides simply helping to keep the organization going and thriving, was to help it be truly international.
