Dear Friend,

I am very sad today to announce the passing of Alvin Toffler.

Mr. Toffler was a visionary futurist and an early member of the World Future Society. He is best known as the author of the best-selling book Future Shock, one of my personal favorites. 

The admiration for Mr. Toffler from the World Future Society is difficult to encapsulate. From the earliest days when this organization began, he has been a friend and mentor. His insights about how society behaves when too much change happens too quickly helps to guide our new direction for The World Future Society. Helping people adapt to change and remove fear is key if we are to advance as a society. We look to his guidance as we look inward at our own purpose, mission, and vision and prepare for the accelerating rate of change ahead of us. 

Our thoughts are with his wife Heidi and daughter Karen and all who knew and loved him. 

A candle will be lit at WorldFuture 2016 to honor his continuing legacy.

Thank you, Mr. Toffler, for leaving us with so much.

To the future!
