Drop in a Bucket Project – flood relief for schools Mary is coordinating this and will send out information to the committee. If you would like to assist directly please contact Mary. Attached is an ideas sheet to get started. I love reading – month of February Tehani, Brenda and Bernadette are working on this – materials will be made available on the public domain of the WASLA website. Send anything you might have to Tehani. IC3 Journal Editorial Review Committee: Tehani, Judy, Val, Barbara and Mary Refereed articles – Brenda Clover, anyone else? Contents (please send your suggestions to Tehani) Editorial – Tehani From the President’s desk – either Mary or Barbara or both AISWA? Library Showcase: Would like to do a library showcase in each issue – mainly photographic, highlighting different ways of doing things eg. Jane Graham’s glass topped collaborative tables. BC/anyone else will add some tips for revamping your library – say four/six per issue. Tehani will put out a call for papers and articles. Tehani to liaise with AISWA and their contribution. Tehani will work on sponsorship for the journal. Objective is for sponsorship to pay for most of the printing as we still have postage to consider. Suggestions: 2 half page ads on back cover $550 per issue or $1500 for annual sponsorship. 4 quarter page ads inside back cover $300 per issue or $750 for annual sponsorship Or 8 ads on inside back cover $200 per issue or $450 for annual sponsorship Ultimately the sponsorship deals will be left up to Tehani to organise. Many thanks to Tehani – this looks like being a real winner. Perhaps when the front cover is ready we post it on the WASLA website to advertise and send it out in the weekly email.
