OK, as a local chapter we're supposed to submit an annual report;  I  
was sent a message about it weeks ago, but haven't done anything about  
it.  I've created the skeleton page according to Tyler's template, but  
nothing else yet.  Suggestions for content very welcome, either by  
email to me, or editing the page itself:
