Hi, I'm hoping for a March 6th deadline for the Annual Report  

This email is a follow up from the earlier note (below) and also  
cc:'ing those listed as primary contact on the Annual Report wiki page:


We're ready to start receiving annual reports.  I would like to have  
all the reports in the next 3 weeks, sooner if at all possible.   
Please let me know if this is impossible for you, otherwise the  
deadline is March 6th.

I have posted a template to follow:

You are welcome to add much more to your article than the template  
describes, but please follow the formatting notes in that wiki page.   
If you are not using the wiki to submit your report, please follow  
this style as best as possible in the rendered HTML.  Ultimately, it  
will be imported into LaTeX and the more consistent the inputs are,  
the easier it will be to handle.

I've named the page, for consistency, where your report will reside.   
Please do not alter it unless absolutely necessary.  If you are not  
able to edit the wiki for whatever reason, you can email your report  
to me directly (wiki or text formatting preferred).

I'm looking forward to learning much more about all the local  
chapter, project and committee work that happen last year and being  
able to share this with others are just as interested.

Best wishes,
