the ballots cast on the proposed amendment to the ARLIS/NA Bylaws, Article IX,

After the St Louis conference, sent updated information to Jonathan

never materialized during the previous year), collected individual portraits of
Board members for posting on the AWS. Some were submitted digitally. I scanned
those submitted as photographs, and forwarded all the scans to J. Franklin for

C. Online meetings were not held this year, but one motion (Motion #3) was passed by an e-mail vote and ratified at the Midyear meeting.
Diversity Committee: I attended the business meeting at the St. Louis
conference. Shannon Van Kirk, a new member of the committee, volunteered to take
responsibility for maintaining the committee’s web page. Ann Burns and Pedro
Figueredo offered to assist. After Midyear, I corresponded by e-mail with the
co-chairs, Marilyn Russell-Bogle and Lucie Stylianopoulos, about their need for
meeting space at the conference in Baltimore; they decided in the end that they
did not need to have a room reserved. The Diversity Committee members plan to
attend the Membership Committee meeting and to continue their work within that
Visual Resources Advisory Committee: I attended VRAC’s business meeting
in St. Louis. Most of the discussion focused on the joint VRA/ARLIS Task Force
on Continuing Education, to be offered initially at Rice University. Just prior
to Midyear, the Task Force decided to postpone their first workshop until early
summer, 2004. The Board therefore did not approve funds for The Task Force to
promote the 2003 workshop. In post-Midyear e-mail correspondence with Mary
Wassermann, I helped to clear up a misunderstanding that ARLIS was postponing
the Task Force itself. I referred her to Phil Heagy, Treasurer, to clarify any
financial needs of the Task Force for FY 2003. I also advised Mary to have the
Task Force consult with the ARLIS/NA Development Committee on fundraising for
will not continue as a committee after the Baltimore conference, but it will be
replaced by a task force to evaluate the effects of the joint conference with
VRA (such as joint meetings of chapters, or an increase of VR members within
ARLIS/NA) and to make recommendations for the future.
the request of Margaret Webster, served on an ad hoc committee to revise the
Criteria for the Hiring and Retention of Visual Resources Professionals. The
original document was created in 1995 by the Joint ARLIS/NA – VRA Task Force
on Visual Resources Professional Issues, chaired by Margaret Webster. The
revision was prompted by a request for an update by the chairperson of the CAA
Professional Practices Committee for posting on the CAA web site.
