These are exciting and challenging times for the International Biometric Society and professional societies in general. These challenges require that we actively plan for our future and consider "Our Future as History"; that which lies ahead becomes the present and the present becomes history. To plan for the future I build on themes identified in my presidential address in Montréal, outlining our current status and initiatives, predicting and highlighting implications that call for expansion of our current activities and creation of new ones. These will ensure that we create our desired future and thereby produce a proud legacy.
