NZ in late summer is very very nice - good idea to come!

> Graeme (apologies for the earlier misspelling of your name), please ask Min to join via http://sustainablesources.com/mailman/listinfo.cgi/GSBN and then let me know when she's done so. I doubt we'll see any "no" votes, so I'll probably be adding her as a contributor as well in the next few days.
> NZ in March 2016... hmmm. If I do well in the job interview on Friday I may be in a position to do that one, and hopefully maybe bring the whole family.

>> As she says of herself:
>> I am a New Zealand registered architect with over thirty years experience. During that time I have designed a number of earth and straw bale buildings and more recently(2012) completed a Master of Architecture thesis "Earth and Straw Bale: their performance and potential as building materials in New Zealand." I am a member of the Standards New Zealand Committee responsible for our Earth Building Standards and part of a working group looking at providing building consent information for straw bale construction. Most importantly I am on the organising committee for the 2016 International Straw Building Conference to be held in Methven, New Zealand in March 2016 which is going to be a ripper!

>>> Hi all,
>>> We had a couple of nominations hanging out there - Brad Young of Fairfield IA and cob builder Kevin McCabe. But due to poor follow through, Brad was on the 'read only' list until just now when I promoted him to contributing member status (WELCOME, Brad! from a fellow 'roo), and Kevin hasn't even joined the 'read only' list. Tom or Graham, are you willing to follow up on Kevin - invite him to the list and then let me know he's signed up.
>>> The same procedure goes for Enga - ask her to sign up for the list and let me know once she's there. I can then make her a contributing member.
>>> Sign up is through the link in the footer of every message from the list.
>>> With all these cobbers and other not-pure-straw people coming in lately, perhaps we should change the name from Global Straw Building Network to Global Sustainable Building Network!
