That pretty much sums up what my understanding was: Aroideana was/is a scientific journal, like Biotropica or Annals of Botany, but on a smaller scale.  The IAS newsletter, as the name implies, is for news -- IAS and other aroid-related events and happenings.

<< who's who, their interests, collection lists of
genera and species, Members' Births!, Marriages, Deaths, Life Changes, Lists
of Wants, Surplus & Exchanges, Reports of developments in Horticulture, of
Journeys into the Forest if they come back,  advice on growing, Sources,
good and plants, Public Botanic Garden specialisms and whether they are
commercial accessible to Specialist Collectors, Warnings, Group Trips, Group
Strategies. etc   

Indeed.  My very first year in IAS, I saw an announcement for a symposium of the International Society for Tropical Root Crops -- an organization not in any way affiliated with IAS.  It was a valuable tip, for otherwise I would never have known about what turned out to be a very interesting symposium.  I propose that, in addition to after-the-fact reports of collecting trips, such trips should be made known beforehand, in the planning stages, in case perchance a reader has a certain expertise that might help the expedition.

<< Maybe more fine pictures, diagrams, details
of habitat etc etc would make the most technical MORE definitive yet more
appealling and readable? 

Probably.
