ACTIVITIES

The request to translate the membership brochure was received in early December.  The work is still in process as we have had difficulty getting people to work on the documents.  We still seem to have more consistent volunteers to translate materials into French, and difficulty in finding volunteers to translate into Spanish.

A big thank you is owed to Birdie for stepping up and completing the draft of the French translation of the membership brochure quickly, which was recently reviewed/vetted by a native speaker and needs some follow up editing.

Draft for the Spanish translation has been received and is being formatted/finalized.

The NASIG Executive Board made the decision that due to the irregular level of activity, a formal team of translators is no longer needed.  In the future, an ad hoc team will be established if anything needs to be translated.

ACTION REQUIRED BY THE BOARD
None at this time.

QUESTIONS FOR THE BOARD
None at this time.

RECOMMENDATIONS TO THE BOARD

None at this time.

Respectfully submitted,
Shana L. McDanold
