[Ed. note:  The following is excerpted from the fall report to the Executive Board.]

Kathryn Wesley, Editor-in-Chief

PDF Catchup Project

September 2008 completed and posted August 3.  A copy was sent to the archivist.  Angela, with input from Kathryn, has developed a new design incorporating the new logo to begin with the December 2008 issue.  This issue is in the final stages of proofing and should be posted within a few days.  Angela has the files ready to produce the March 2008 issue.  This should proceed quickly now that the design issues are settled.

Other Activities

  • Contacted Jessica Broom (designer) with a question about the Newsletter logo, which she tweaked at no charge
  • Posted an item to the Newsletter blog from the board expressing concern for members in the  Los Angeles area during the wildfire (9/1)
  • Per NASIG/ASA collaboration agreement, sent items to Sarah Durant for ASA News:
    o Announcement of the agreement, edited to present the ASA viewpoint
    o PPC call for proposals
    o Above items appear in the September issue of ASA News, http://www.subscription-agents.org/files/asa/ASA%20NEWS%20No%20171.pdf
    o Per Sarah’s request, notified her when the September issue of the blog edition was completed
  • Sent ALPSP North American events to be posted on our events calendar
  • Asked publicist to send a copy of PPC’s call for proposals to ALCTS Newsletter Online
  • Jennifer added ASA and ALPSP to the Newsletter blog’s sidebar

Personnel Changes

Sharon Heminger retired as pdf editor with the completion of the September 2008 issue.  Angela will be credited as pdf editor in the catch up issues.  We will advertise for a permanent replacement when the pdf edition is caught up.

Lillian DeBlois retired as conference editor with the completion of the 2009 conference issue, but offered to continue helping with calendar duties until we find a replacement.

Both Sharon and Lillian have been great to work with and have offered any assistance needed to their successors.
