You can make a difference!

Everyone, please take the time to read this one!

We are endeavoring to make the IAS Newsletter and portions of Aroideana much more "user friendly".  Aroideana will remain much the same since it is a scientific journal but we are also hoping to add several more horticultural articles to each edition.  However, we are also looking for scientifically based articles that can be useful to growers as well.  If you can offer a good explanation as to why soil should be mixed in a particular way to benefit a specific group of species, WRITE ABOUT IT!  If you have an unusual collection of Amorphophallus,
WRITE ABOUT IT!  If you are a really good with growing Alocasia or Colocasia, WRITE ABOUT IT!

I am asking that all of the brilliant minds on this forum consider
doing a brief article for the International Aroid Society Newsletter or Aroideana.  We are specifically looking for horticultural articles about growing plants in unusual conditions.  We need articles about growing specific genera and anything you may have learned that may be useful to others.  We need articles about the exact same things we talk about right here!

If you don't consider yourself a "writer" there are those ready to help!  We just need your ideas and input.  Remember, eve writers with thousands of articles to their credit had to write the first one!  Writing is not difficult, just express your ideas.

If you have an idea for the Newsletter please send it to Carla Kostelac  <Carla.Kostelac@mobot.org>  ASAP.  We still have room for articles in the next issue but we need to get ready for the first issue of 2011 as well.  If you have an idea for an article for Aroideana please send your recommendations to Dr. Derek Burch  <derek@horticulturist.com>

The board is now on a mission to increase the membership of the society and to make the entire society and its publications directed as much as possible at our members.  You are about to see a lot more promotional material as well as a brand new full color membership brochure.

If you have any ideas please make them known right here!  By the way, this request goes out to all IAS members and if you are a non-member please make your idea known as well!  We really want to see more articles coming from our members that live in Europe, Asia, The Caribbean, as well as South and Central America.  I know there are some very good minds in this group because I read what you post all the time!  Just expand on it!

This is your IAS and you can help to make it better!

IAS Corresponding Secretary
