Subject:        The SHAKSPER Advisory Board

Dear SHAKSPEReans,

Approximately forty-five SHAKSPEReans responded to my posting of a few weeks
ago regarding establishing a SHAKSPER Advisory Board with about the same number
of nominations for possible members of this Board. I would like to express my
gratitude to everyone who wrote with suggestions, recommendations,
observations, and advice and encourage future correspondence about the
conference.

I carefully considered all the fine nominations and sent invitations to members
who represented many of the diverse constituencies of SHAKSPER. The choices
were not easy; the response was remarkable.

As I indicated earlier, I am setting up the Board to obtain advice on 1)
Conference Policies, 2) Complaints, and 3) Questionable Posting.

Regarding conference policies,  I want to invite members of SHAKSPER privately
to send ideas to me for policies that would affect the conference as a whole.
I will then submit those ideas to the Advisory for comments. I will consider
the Board's advice and then I will send a  proposal to the members for
their comments.  Only after this process will policies, if needed, be
determined and enforced.

I now have the pleasure of announcing the members of the SHAKSPER Advisory
Board.
