Activities:
•   The May newsletter was posted with time to spare. This was the first issue done with InDesign so there were some quirks to iron out but otherwise the change has worked out fine.

•   Jim Coan and Nancy Abashian have left the committee. Jim retired and Nancy has other commitments.

Upcoming:
•   We’re planning to do the special ‘post-conference’ edition again since it was such a hit last year (http://www.sunyla.org/sunyla_docs/newsletters/2016june-se.pdf)
•   I might recruit a couple of new members, or not. I haven’t decided yet.
