The Game Has Changed

Mitch Morrison, Vice President of Retailer Relations

“A state without the means of some change is without the means of its conservation.”

This statement by one of my favorite statesmen, 18th century Anglo-Irish philosopher and political theorist Edmund Burke, applies to us as people and also to our businesses. Absolute rigidity and inflexibility—a mindset that what is must always be—is doomed to failure despite the nobility of its original intent.

Today, we at CSP magazine are delivering on our promised change. More than 102,000 of you are reading this edition of CSP. For many, it is your first time. Some of you had been perusing the pages of CSP Independent, a fine quarterly publication we launched more than four years ago.
