List significant activities the committee has done since last report:

This year the Publications Committee has focused its work on the following two tasks:

  1. Finishing and Publishing Spotlight featuring the Project 40/40 on CALA Leadership.
  2. Exploring ideas/topics for future issues of Spotlight in and beyond 2013.

As a way to celebrate CALA’s 40 years’ history and reflect on the leadership development of CALA, the committee worked with the Project 40/40 participants and compiled the result of the project into a special theme issue. For all its unexpected delays, the finished issue was published on April 4th, 2013. Please view the issue at http://cala-web.org/files/spotlight/LeadershipInterview.pdf

For task 2, the committee was contacted by the CALA past President Shali Zhang (working on a CALA presidential project) earlier this year for a special Spotlight issue on Dr. Hwa-Wei Lee. The committee co-chairs and Shali discussed the idea of collaboration to produce this theme issue dedicated to Dr. Hwa-Wei Lee for his extraordinary career and accomplishments. This worthy initiative will need to be further pursued by the new co-chairs and members of the Publications Committee in the coming year.
