Hello, IAS Members,
Thanks to the work of many people, the first IAS
Newsletter, Volume 33, Number 1, is now available. You have probably already
received it in your email.
Unfortunately another good friend of the IAS has passed
away, Steve Lucas, and he is honored in the Newsletter by several of his close
friends. We all appreciated everything that Steve did for our Society. Some of
the other articles in this issue contain wonderful photos of aroids and information
about growing them. Steve would have enjoyed them very much as will all of you.
The deadline for submissions to the June IAS
Newsletter will be May 15. Wow, that gives everyone plenty of time to write
and send in some articles!! And don’t forget your color photos! We can
handle unlimited photos and text. When writing articles for the Newsletter, please
keep the following in mind: We can only accept separate high resolution
photos in JPEG or TIFF format in addition to the Word document. Articles that
are not in this format or have embedded photos will be returned to the
Many thanks and best wishes to you,
