News update

Hello, 

There are a few items would would like to bring to the attention of ICA members. 

1. Medal nominations (Kirkman, Hall, Euler and Stanton) are due December 31. Please send nominations of deserving candidates to Charlie Colbourn. For details about  the nomination process, please see the following web page:

2. Medal presentations are continuing. Three additional presentations of framed certificates and engraved medals will take place at the 5th International Combinatorics Conference (5ICC) which is being held at Monash University (Melbourne) in December. This brings to 20 the number of presentations that have taken place in the last 15 months, almost completely catching up after years of inactivity. 

3. Volume 81 of the Bulletin is ready to be mailed next week. There have been some one-time delays as a transition was being made to a new printer. The new printer will help us control costs moving forward (keeping membership dues as low as possible, and lowering them if possible, is a priority for us).  As an ICA member, you have already been given access to the .pdf  file of this issue on a password-protected web page some time ago, and this was communicated to you previously. Further, the refereed articles are available on the ICA web pages:

Recall that all refereed papers (since Volume 79) are *open access*, while other materials in the Bulletin are "members-only". 

4. We are in the process of setting up a Membership Committee, which will seek to find ways to help to grow the membership of the ICA.  After several years of decline, we are starting the see more new members join the ICA, but this is an ongoing process and we want to do everything we can to encourage new members to join. 

As always, please send me any comments or suggestions you might have. 

Doug Stinson 
ICA President
