The afternoon will continue with more talks about observing variable stars and ends with brief teaser presentations describing the poster papers that are available for viewing throughout the weekend.

No proposals have been received for the 2008 General Assembly. The Annual Meeting is required by the Bylaws, but the paper sessions, tours, and social events which have become a part of the "GA Experience" are hosted by a local Centre. Unless a Centre steps forward to host the 2008 GA, the event may be cancelled.

Any Centre with the interest in hosting this event should contact Scott Young at sdy @ mts.net as soon as possible.

En février dernier, les membres de la Société ont voté en faveur du retrait du Journal, de la liste des bénéfices reliés au statut de membre. Subséquemment, le Conseil national a adopté une proposition visant à diffuser le Journal aux membres en format électronique. Ces décisions avaient pour but d'aider la Société à corriger son déficit opérationnel.

In February of this year the Society membership voted to remove the entitlement to receive the Journal as a benefit of membership. The national council subsequently approved a proposal to change the default delivery mode of the Journal to members, from print to electronic. This initiative was undertaken to help correct the Society’s operating deficit.
