The articles in this issue of Perspectives on Augmentative and Alternative Communication represent some of the invited presentations at the Division's recent 9th Annual Conference, “Toward Linguistic Competence in AAC: Building and Re-Building Language.” When I was invited by the Division's Steering Committee to serve as Program Chair, the topic for this conference had already been selected. My first reaction was, “Why did they invite me? What do I know about linguistic competence in AAC?” For the last many years, my clinical research interests have focused on perceptions of linguistic performance of people who use utterance-based communication systems (e.g., Bedrosian, Hoag, & McCoy, 2003; Hoag, Bedrosian, McCoy, & Johnson, in press).
