Do You Want An Accord?
Online Issue #5 - Fall 2006
Yes, this issue, we ask the membership, "Do you want an Accord?". We ask, because there has consistently been low content submission to the Accord from membership, and what appears to be a general lack of member interest, since it went online. This general apathy continues in spite of the constant begging and harping of the Accord staff for anything to go into the Accord. For those who have sent us submissions, we thank you.
The print version moved to the Internet format primarily to save on the cost of printing, which has greatly increased over the past few years. In spite of the large number of people who cheered the idea of an e-zine, the Accord experiences a continual decline in member interest.
The articles you see here, and in the previous online editions, are all we have to show. We may be missing some as our editor has been out sick. Regardless, there is a shortage of not only articles, but even officer reports. This issue, as in previous ones, if you see no officer report, assume that the Accord Staff never received one.
So ask yourself:
- Is the Accord still serving a useful purpose?
- Is it using CMA staff and resources that should be redirected elsewhere?
- Should we keep this when there is no interest in it?
And at Samhain, perhaps it's time to visit changing the CMA Bylaws to no longer require a quarterly newsletter.
