The newsletter is an important tool used to educate the membership and helps the Society to grow and prosper. It is an important part of the self‑image of the Society, something that pulls activities and members together and shows why they matter.
We encourage our members to write and submit articles to the editor, John Weersing. Please submit your articles three days before the last day of the month. The editor has sole discretion in choosing when and which articles to print, and may edit articles for length, style and content.
We know many of our members have experiences and knowledge they would like to share. Your articles may be submitted as a MS Word document (DOC or DOCX) (as an e-mail attachment), or in RTF or TXT format. Typing your article directly into your e-mail message is also acceptable. Please do not use special formats, fonts or styles: These have to be removed anyway.
