Jul 19, 2004: AIfIA Second Annual Report

Courtesy of Gene Smith, here are the highlights from AIfIA's second annual report:

Membership has grown 37% in the past year, to over 560 people from over 40 countries.
The IA Job Board has connected employers and job seekers through over 300 job postings.
Our sponsorship program, which strives to promote and grow the IA community on a regional basis, sponsored events in Chile, Denmark, and England.
Our new membership pricing system introduced a fee structure that offers members from developing countries substantially lower rates.
The IA Library, launched in April, now has over 200 references to IA resources in English, Spanish, French, Italian, and Japanese.
The Translations Initiative produced 29 newly translated documents in Danish, Dutch, English, French, Italian, Japanese, Portugese, and Spanish.
At the end of the most recent fiscal year (June 30, 2004), AIfIA was firmly in the black, with more than US$32,000 in assets and no debt.

Not too terribly bad for an all-volunteer organization less than two years old! Hope you'll join AIfIA if you haven't. And board elections are coming up soon; hope you'll consider running. Details coming soon...

"a tad lol"? A tad laughing out loud? Hmmm, doesn't make sense. A dad lollipops or licorice? Something else?
