**Activity in Current Reporting Period 

a)      Projects completed (For example, any procedures, tip sheets, checklists, etc. created during this period): 


Collected, edited, and laid out stories for the Midwinter issue.  Sent the Midwinter issue of Footnotes to membership. Conducted a major survey of the NMRT membership about what they want from Footnotes in content, delivery mechanism, and timing.


b)      Projects in progress but not yet completed:


Survey data has been compiled and sent to committee members and supervising board members. We are still developing our response to the survey, and our related recommendations to the board about how Footnotes should change based on the member survey responses.



**Action Items/Issues To Be Resolved (What is left to do, based on your Planning Report?
Have there been any substantial changes in plans since then? What items, if any, have been deferred until next year?):


Footnotes is still not online.  We decided to survey the membership to find out if they wanted Footnotes to be online after all.  We still need to do some research about potential costs for different delivery formats, make a recommendation to the board, and make whatever changes are accepted and agreed upon.
