This is not a final decision yet, but my dad (Terry Aitken, Bulletin
Editor) is leaning very heavily to printing only a summary of the AIS Board
Meeting minutes in the Bulletin. Many people seem to be curious about what
goes on in Board meetings, but very few want to read every word of it. And
it does take up a lot of room in the Bulletin twice a year. The complete
printed text would be available free for the asking to anyone who wanted
all of it.
I am surprised you have not received the July Bulletin yet. They all went
out in the mail by July 3. I know book rate is slow, but that is more than
three weeks ago. Anyone else out there who has not received it yet?
