SUMMARY AND CONCLUSIONS
The Continuing Education Committee (CEC) continued to support a variety of serial-related programming last year.  In addition to proposals supported, two program proposals were forwarded to the Program Planning Committee resulting in development of pre-conferences for the 2006 Annual Conference.  There is a need next year for the Committee to review pre-conferences and conference programs to determine what programs, if any, should be repackaged as continuing education programs.   

Next year it is recommended that the NASIG logo be included in sponsored programs websites.  This is in addition to distribution of the NASIG brochures and the displaying of the NASIG banner.    

The Committee delayed further development of income-generating distance education models.  A fundamental question for the Board concerned who would incur the start-up costs if distance education programs were developed within NASIG.  An alternative approach for the Committee may be to provide added value to NASIG membership by offering discounts or scholarships for participation in serial related distance education programming to members or potential members.  

We want to take this opportunity to thank the 2005/6 NASIG Board and the Continuing Education Committee membership for its support last year.  It has been a pleasure serving NASIG as committee chairs.
