Is this an interim or annual report: Interim report

List significant activities the committee has done since last report:

The Committee made two calls, one in September and one in October 2009, for members to submit news worthy items of their activities, appointments, promotions, achievements, state, national, international meetings, and other such pursuits.
We were pleased to receive so many complimentary comments from our members on the wide range of accomplishments and activities from our CALA colleagues. In this issue, the many photos taken by Haiwang Yuan and members of CALA further enriched the issue. We were able to display the many talents of CALA members and their outstanding contributions to the Chinese Library profession.

The newsletter was divided into the following sections: Announcements, International Meetings, Achievements of CALA Members, CALA Board Meetings, CALA Board Special Online Meetings, CALA Interim Reports and Task Force Reports.

The news items were categorized, edited and entered electronically. These were laid out with Microsoft Office Publisher 2007 and saved as a .pub file. A PDF copy was also saved for wide web distribution. The Editorial Team is composed of two members: Yu is mainly responsible for content editing and Deng is primarily responsible for layout design.

List committee recommendations, if any, to the Board:

1. Please encourage members to continue including photos when they send
in news items.

2. Select one or two volunteers from conference meetings who will be responsible for
taking pictures of important CALA events, meetings, or other international meetings
involving CALA members.
