Subject: Re: GSBN:Membership requests

Hi
Andrew has been in Ausbale for a couple of years and his effort in setting
up the web site has been
great. He is an architect and practioner here in Australia.
I would certainly move that he is accepted into GSBN.

Subject: Re: GSBN:Membership requests

I'll weigh in. Although Andrew has nominated himself for the GSBN list, he
has received strong endorsement from several AUSBALE members and Australian
straw-bale builders and fit the bill as a representative of regional straw
construction organizations.

I agree with Bill that the Ecosa Institute may think they are just joining
an open list. I've called Tom Hahn, who is listed as a faculty member on the
Ecosa web site, to see if he's aware of any particular interest.

Subject: Re: GSBN:Membership requests

I know some people associated with the Ecosa Institute, including the
founder/director Antony Brown. Ecosa is a wonderful educational
organization with great people, but hopefully we'll find out through
Tom if there is someone there who would be appropriately knowledgeable
to be a member of this group. Is Tom not a member of GSBN? If not, he
certainly would be qualified in every respect to be and perhaps could
be the link to Ecosa if there isn't someone else who would be
appropriate.

Subject: List of Members

As a reminder of the GSBN member list, and because I have been wanting to do
this for some time, I created a spreadsheet of current members (see
attached). The document is currently sorted by country, state, and name
(first name as I didn't take the time to separate first and last).

Hope it will be helpful to everyone on the list.

Since this email is partly about the purpose of the GSBN list, I've also
sent it there.

Yes, I know. The email and was sent to Bill and copied to Dirk. Some
people from the list wanted me to translate some Danish test results,
Dirk contacted me, so I emailed Bill and copied it to Dirk.

I know, I've read the stuff Bill sent me. Is there a problem with me
being on the list?

I stared answering this part of your email but changed my mind. I'm
instead putting some time into writing a 'vision statement' for the CD -
when it's roughly finished I'll let you know.
