Welcome to our May Members’ Newsletter; can you believe it, June already. This is a fairly thin edition and I am bound to have missed some of the many happenings that have occurred over the last month (my apologies). Please feel free to send us any potentially newsworthy items, I know there is a lot of interesting stuff going on out there that we don’t always hear about.
