Editors' bit

Your bimonthly newsletter returns again with the usual heady mix of articles and news from the upa and the chapters. This time we look a bit different, but we are shy debutents - so please let us know what you think.

As ever we rely on your input for articles and ideas, so please contribute. Also this month we have suggested a topic (see voice your opinions) and would like to publish a range of opinions in the next issue - so don't just skulk in private maillists, make your voice heard!
