It is a source of great joy that the renewal of our website, constitutes the framework for the renewal of the Board of Directors of the SLA and in this way reopen our page with a new spirit of change and commitment that with the support of all of us allow to achieve greater goals. Today the SLA is a nonprofit, civil association formed by 141 partners from 13 countries, which have made possible the dream raised on July 21, 1994, during the realization of the IX International Congress of Acarology in Columbus, Ohio, USA. The maturity of the Acarology in Latin America is reflected, among other things, by the organization of two International Congresses of Acarology, the ninth held in 2002 in the city of Mérida, Yuc., Mexico and the thirteenth celebrated in 2010 in the city of Recife, PE., Brazil. In a special way, I would like to refer to the celebration of the First Latin American Acarology Congress in the City of Puebla, Pue., Mexico, which hosted the Assembly of Members of the SLA on May 25, 2012, and which constituted the ideal space to achieve the agreements that have given a great impulse to our Society. Our recognition to the organizers. Finally, on behalf of the current Board of Directors, I invite you to actively participate in the enrichment of this page, for the benefit of our discipline and its impact on society, future generations of acarologists and promotion of an awareness of the importance of knowledge and the conservation of our biodiversity.
