We are changing the format of our bi-monthly newsletter to something
which can be quickly read online with links to longer articles on our
website. Our new e-newsletter will be produced more often, probably
biweekly, interspersed with shorter, more frequent bulletins as things
come up. This will make our news more timely and easier to access.
