Dear Colleagues:

     The Newsletter for this spring is in fact not a newsletter. While there are some noteworthy items concerning recently published studies and conference presentations, as well as upcoming conference papers, the total amount of news is somewhat limited. At the same time, we here in the Secretariat-Treasury have long thought that it would be a good idea to have a directory of the members of the CSA. So, here it is. This first edition of the CSA directory was composed using the information in the membership list. We therefore anticipate that there are a goodly number of mistakes, misspellings, and out-of-date information. Also, as you will see, there are many persons whose e-mail addresses are not listed (since, at the time, we did not have that information on record). Last but not least, there is some inconsistency in the use or omission of accent marks on Spanish proper names and other words.
     In future editions we will try to correct any errors brought to our attention and to regularize spelling and accentuation practice. In the meantime, we would like to urge you to write us with any comments and corrections that you would like to see in future editions.
     Finally, we would be remiss in our duties as holder of the purse strings if we did not take this opportunity to remind you, once again, to catch up on your dues! Please note the number next to your name on the mailing label (e.g., '96 or '97, etc.); you should see a '98. The number of members in arrears for several years is slightly distressing. We have tried to be very patient, but before the end of summer, the names of those not paid at least through '96 will be moved to the inactive list. Needless to say, if you have any reason to believe that our records are in error, please let us know and we will endeavor to set the record straight. You may reach us at the mailing address or by e-mail at the address listed (clamurrw@emporia.edu). But please note that we will be out of town, and out of the office, for most of the month of July.
     Meanwhile, we take this opportunity to wish you all the best for the balance of this summer, hoping that it will prove both restful and productive.

Cordially,

William H. Clamurro
