October 2014 Newsletter

The sixth issue of Vires Acquirit, the Association’s occasional newsletter to members, was published in October 2014. Information in that newsletter constituted, in effect, a briefing paper for matters discussed at the 7th annual general meeting on 3rd November 2014.

At this stage, the AGM’s determinations on future directions that Meteor Incorporated might take are confidential to the committee, which has set up a subcommittee to work with a polymath on ways in which the Australian science fiction community might forge links with the Australian library system for the rescue, archiving and ongoing curating of at risk/unwanted collections.

This page will be updated when another issue of Vires Acquirit is posted to report progress by that subcommittee.

December 2012 Newsletter

Following the 5th annual general meeting on 22nd November 2012, attached is the fifth issue of Vires Acquirit, the Association’s occasional newsletter to members. It reports on what transpired at the meeting and sets out future directions for the Meteor Fund.

See Page 3 for Bruce Gillespie’s entertaining account of the ‘rescue’ and storage of significant items from Mervyn Binns’s collection on 6th December 2010.

Season’s greetings and best wishes from Bill Wright, secretary.
