These are sent to the membership at the beginning of each week. If you think they

New membership form
Val is working to have this sent out to the members and the listserv by next week.
Options for credit card payment and bank transfer. Fees to remain the same.
Members who pay before the end of February to get a discount.

WASLA as a member
Decision was made for WASLA to join IASL and ETA.
Decision to pay for Margaret’s membership for IASL (2 years).
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.
      2 half page ads on back cover $550 per issue or $1500 for annual
      4 quarter page ads inside back cover $300 per issue or $750 for annual
      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.
