|July 2004||Members' Letter|
This mailshot introduces a Members' Letter, replacing the old Chair's letter. I will still use this opening paragraph to keep you up to date on the EG big picture but I mainly want you to see news items from our membership. So, Chapters in particular might like to nominate a correspondent to feed me the latest news about your activities or people. This Letter reaches all EG members, including those in your own country, and so it is a good opportunity to tell us all what you are up to! In fact I will make exactly the same offer to Working Groups and indeed any member who has something worth telling us about. Now is the time to do it of course, guaranteed to be in time for the next Letter ...
This year's EG Conference will be in Grenoble; next year it will be in Dublin. Eurographics again takes you to cultural riches that no other conference can match! These are both wonderful locations and I look forward to seeing many of you there. Our web site has the latest information, as always at www.eg.org.
