Thank you Anner.  We'll keep you in mind as we develop the concept.
Another project needing volunteers is a coffee table book.  This was
approved by the board in the fall, but we have no one to take the lead
on it yet.

Any project ideas are welcome.  But don't forget it would be more useful
to have an idea of possible volunteers to carry it out.

I can always use more committee members who can help steer projects,
e.g., line up people to carry out projects and monitor progress.

I will be putting out a call in the AIS Bulletin for volunteers and
describe more fully the Publications Committee.  It is the newest
standing committee of the AIS.  If you have an interest in any part of
bringing a publication to the members, big tasks or small, please
contact me.

Maureen Mark
AIS Publications Committee Chair

Could you mean me? Why, thank you, that is very flattering;  however, I
learned through experience not to volunteer for any AIS  project until I
determine precisely for what it is I am  volunteering. I allowed myself
in past
to be charmed and schmoozed into  some completely untenable positions,
see. Besides which, as I am sure you  are aware, people's approach to
sorts of things differs, as do  their personal standards, and their
ideas of what
nice  is.

Once you get some sort of detailed prospectus pulled together  on the
project, I'll certainly be available to take a look at it  and to give
some thought
to whether I am able to make  a worthwhile contribution, assuming I am
alive, of course, after all, I  am 57. Meanwhile, I have promised John a
riveting little scrap for  the AIS webpage on the origins of the AIS

I wish to reiterate that, in my opinion, the need for  a comprehensive
authoritative general interest publication is  immediate, and pressing.
