Literature Report

April 2013

 

Most of the time over the last month has gone in to preparing for the first ABC held abroad – the 2013 ACA WSO ABC in Birkerød, Denmark (near Copenhagen).  The Literature committee undertook the task to begin the preliminary draft of the 2013 ABC Delegate’s Packet.

 

The Literature Committee’s preparations for the ABC included updating and/or getting prototypes of the Hospitals & Institutions, Public Information, ACA Essentials and New Literature Policy tri-folds,  The Cross Talk and Good Enough Group booklets, and getting samples of the Danish Fellowship Text.

 

In addition, the Literature Committee followed up with the assigned  tasks associated with the ACA WSO Literature Distribution Center’s Inventory/Order Processing Report (Inventory).

 

e-BRB sales for March were 252 e-books sold.  All tolled, there have been 1,694 e-BRBs sold since it went live in August. 

 

The inaugural Book Seeding Project delivery to the UK was received with great appreciation and enthusiasm from across the pond.

 

 

a-BRB – The editing process is nearly 2/3 complete.  Negotiations concerning the payment for the editing services are going to be undertaken in the next couple of weeks.

 

 

ACA Is… – Still in search for an Arabic translation.

 

Spanish BRB – Ines Z., Spanish Translation/Group Liaison Trusted Servant continues to work with the Spanish translations groups and fielding Spanish Outreach e-mail questions.

 

Danish BRB – The Danish fellowship Text is done and, save for possible payment for insurance, should be shipped in the next couple of weeks.

 

The Finns are discussing buying our lot of about 100 Finnish books while they ponder their next bulk order.

 

The various value enhancing/cost saving ideas are being discussed by the Board including bundling are most popular titles and/or requiring a minimum shipment size, etc.

 

We are unofficially exploring how we might be able to reduce shipping costs to Australian groups.

 

Sincerely yours in service,
