Spanish Outreach (SPO) (Denny and Gerry) SPO submitted to CoRe several items. There was some confusion with CoRe contract in wording of length of time to send back for proofing. CoRe has requested to discontinue one of the translated items, so this also created some confusion. The board needs to be in possession of the translated items that currently are in CoRe’s files. It was also noted that the proper routing for all items to go to CoRe is thru the board. Further noted that the non-response from CoRe when they received the items from SPO was wrong.
Suggest board response to SPO come from Denny and Gerry action item.
Liliana spoke as member of Columbia board. Looking for Publishing and distribution contract as they have not received signed contract, They are eager to begin publishing.
