Trustees and Officers of the Corporation

Abbey Publications, Inc., has five trustees: Ellen McCrady, Gary Frost, Roberta Pilette, Tom Clareson and James Wellvang. All serve on a voluntary unpaid basis. Clareson and Wellvang were elected at the last meeting, held August 19. They replace Trustees Terry Belanger and Bob Strauss, who live a long way from Texas and who found it expensive to travel to twice-yearly board meetings. Now all the trustees live in Texas.

Two of the trustees are also officers: McCrady is also the president, and Frost is also the secretary. The treasurer (Paul Banks) and the first vice president (Susan Swartzburg) are not trustees.

Abbey Publications was incorporated in New York State in 1984 and in Utah in 1986. Tax-exempt status was granted in November 1986.

Donations Received in the 12-Month Period Preceding each Month (not the amount received in the month indicated)

The Alkaline Paper Advocate is issued six times a year and has about 400 subscribers. Subscriptions (which include a free pH pen and a list of Useful Addresses) are on a calendar year basis: All start with the first issue of the year, unless otherwise requested, and end on Dec. 31, or after the last issue of the year has appeared. An index for the previous year is sent out in the first quarter. Individual subscriptions are $35; full-time students $20; institutions $45. All issues are in print and indexed. Checks should be made out to Abbey Publications, 7105 Geneva Dr., Austin, TX 78723. Master Card/VISA payments are convenient for payments from abroad, but for domestic payments we prefer checks drawn on a U.S. bank.

This is a nonprofit corporation set up to encourage preservation of written records, including the use of lasting materials in their creation. No paid advertisements are accepted, but anything with news value will be printed if there is room for it. News items and information may be sent or called in at any time. Readers are encouraged to copy or circulate issues and parts of issues, and to reprint unsigned articles and news items; but the Editor's permission must be obtained for making more than 20 copies of lengthy or signed articles. This allows us to consult with the author (who may hold copyright) and to make any necessary corrections or updates before duplication.
