2018 : IUOMA 30 years old


2018 : IUOMA 30 years old

On the upper corner of the IUOMA at NING it reads:

On August 16th 1988 the idea of the IUOMA was born. In November 2008 this IUOMA platform at NING became the home for members.

So, in 2018 it seems we will still be here in NING thanks to all the members that donate, and we have the peasure of celebrating 30 years of IUOMA and 10 years on NING.

This groups is to start with ideas on how we will do that. We are now quite large, so we can surely think of something good to do. Start a discussion when you have an idea, and others can react. Also I am looking for good designs for logo's which I will start to prepare for PR materials (maybe stickers, rubberstamps, etc....?)

When the IUOMA was 20 years, the members managed to send in enough texts for a complete book. With the 25 year celebration, that wasn't that succesful. Too little materials.Maybe a retry for 2018?…Continue

The lay-out for the book has started. A first 11 articles are now included. There is room for more. For every author a small biography will be included. The book will be text orientated mainly, and will include an ilustration with each article too.

Some authors have offered an article. I will be waiting for those. The deadline ia September 30th. Then the book will be lauched. Will have ISBN number, etc... so we will see how it is received.

Suggestions for cover and illustrations are welcome.
