Working Group for the Worldwide Development of Astronomy / Groupe de Travail Pour le Developpement Mondial de L’Astronomie
During the past triennium some effort has been put into setting up what we hope will be an effective Working Group which currently has the above composition. Membership includes the Presidents of Commissions 38 and 46 ex-officio, so some regular change is built in every three years, as these Presidents change. Thanks are due to R. Kippenhahn, P. Lena, and J. Sahade, members of the original Working Group, who have retired from its active membership. The Chairman retains an extensive mailing list of about some 100 names. All those on that list will continue to receive the WG Newsletter. The present system is to mail one Newsletter annually, in April. At the time of writing, two such mailings have been made since the last General Assembly.
