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

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.
