Posting messages

Knowing nothing about how these things operate, I was a little confused about how this blog worked, but having now discovered the ins and outs of the system, I think this could be a very useful means by which we as a committee can post announcements of upcoming events for example, and members can communicate their experiences or problems with the cultivation of our favourite plants.

Introductory Message

Welcome to the IAS blog! The IAS now has over 450 members worldwide which means we have a broad membership base and a lot of knowledge within it concerning Asclepiads and related plants within the family Apocynaceae. We produce the journal Asklepios 3 times a year in which members have an opportunity to contribute in the form of articles or letters to the editor, but it seemed to us that we needed a more immediate means of communication. Hence this blog!

We will post messages here of interest to members and potential members and invite comments. This might give us ideas about ways to improve what we do, as well as being of general interest. The communication ports are open!

Alan Butler, IAS Chairman & Editor
