Topics that were limited for space in the Bulletin can be expanded via News & Notes. We are eager for you to be an iris reporter and tell us on the PR-committee (email@example.com, firstname.lastname@example.org, or email@example.com) about the things you would like included. If you did not receive your first issue, check with the membership secretary firstname.lastname@example.org to see we have your current e-mail on file.
