MM noted the successes of the group and mentioned that it is significant how

(May 2003), LMU�s Testbed event (July 2003), exhibition at Linden Mill,
Hebden Bridge (Feb 2004).
MM noted that LVAF has met every month and minuted the meetings; agreed and
worked within the constitution; appointed the roles of Chair, Secretary and
Treasurer; set up projects with active project teams; set up a Management
Committee, each of whom have specific responsibilities.
A new website has been designed and set up; first issue of the newsletter is
almost ready to go to press; membership has remained stable; a new
logo/brand design is in process; the listserve celebrated it�s second
birthday with 140 subscribers.

offered LVAF �250 to facilitate a Creative Exchange event in Leeds.
Report from Secretary, Ray Stevens �

year, and how the group has remained enthusiastic and has focused on its
aims with clear results.
