Eighteen states are represented by the new group. As usual, there is a demographic mix of races and ethnicities, and there are 14 women and seven men. Some of the Class of '98 are board members or former board members, and there is also a mix of practitioners and people from the academic world. Many are both, teaching at colleges or universities with a part-time practice as well.
