At the end of 2013, there is much to celebrate for the IJBS.
The 7th Triennial Conference in Princeton will be remembered as a major event in the life of the Society. Our listserv is now in place, the Greaves Committee has been appointed thanks to a new set of regulations and procedures, and our website has grown into a major source of information on Bunyan’s life and works, with a chronology and bibliography provided, respectively, by Bob Owens and Galen Johnson. We have had over 2,000 views in the past few months, a more than honourable figure for the young website of a learned society!
There remains much to be done in 2014: to rethink the electronic Recorder, to upgrade the website to a better, more professional solution that will allow us to set up a credit card form to renew online, to redact the new constitution and bye-laws, and to set up regional meetings between triennial conferences. The Executive Committee is looking forward to these new challenges and to help you get the best of your membership of the IJBS. In the meantime, may we wish you all a very merry Christmas and Happy New Year.
