PRESIDENT’S CORNER
Jill Emery, NASIG President

INVIGORATING FALL

Two months ago, my fiancé and I worked on clearing out the summer garden remnants in our backyard plot and starting planting the fall/winter garden. This growing season is going much better for us in central Texas and we’re observing the daily growth of spinach, kale, and chard and there are even a few jalapeño peppers to be picked soon. One of things we’re most excited by is that both the cilantro and basil have self-set and are producing new plants in what we thought was a somewhat barren area of the plot. We’re looking forward to being able to share some of the harvest come Thanksgiving. In NASIG news, the board has held both our fall board meeting and just completed our follow-up phone call. There is quite a bit underway with the organization as you can see from this issue of Newsletter, so let me focus on some of the things that are starting to flourish and not being reported elsewhere in the Newsletter or Newsletter blog.

The new logo maintains traditional NASIG colors of blue, green, and white, and the visual representation of North America. You will soon see the logo pop up in expected locations, such as the NASIG website and the Newsletter, and in more exciting places, such as our Café Press store merchandise.

NARRATIVE OF ACTIVITIES SINCE THE ANNUAL REPORT

CONTINUING ACTIVITIES
Kathryn Johns-Masten, our committee’s co-chair, makes ongoing changes to the Speakers and Consultants Directory when requested by NASIG members.  Last year, our committee reworked the submission form, changed the order and naming of the profile fields, resolved some inconsistencies, removed old members’ entries, and resolved problems with the user input/update form.  I am planning on having the committee send out more general requests for participants through out the year such as announcement in the “What’s New” section of the NASIG website.

2008 CONFERENCE RELATED ACTIVITIES

1) Speaker accountability database
The 2007/2008 PPC members were asked to provide any feedback about speakers from the 2008 conference. This information will be added to the existing details, and saved for future reference by PPC co-chairs as needed.

2) E&A Report
The co-chairs examined the conference evaluations for the 2008 conference for suggestions. In particular, we pulled out suggestions for vision speakers. We also looked closely at comments about the non-repeating format and for any themes of particular interest for the membership. Selected portions of the executive summary were also shared with the PPC members. Continue Reading 23:4 (2008:12) Committee Update: PPC…

PROCEEDINGS

ACTIVITIES

  • Currently, we are collecting the rest of the 2008 conference papers. Virginia has been indispensable in a few cases. We are planning on uploading the draft papers into Google Docs for initial edits in preparation for sending the papers to Taylor & Francis by December 1. Taylor & Francis has a much shorter production cycle than the one we had with Haworth. We will review proofs in early February with a planned publication date in April or May. This will ensure that copies of the Proceedings are available at next year’s conference. Continue Reading 23:4 (2008:12) Committee Update: Proceedings…
