Founding Meeting! South Central Ontario Regional Affiliation of Science for Peace (SCORASP?)

The proposal is to create an organization of Science for Peace members **and chapters in south central Ontario. The purpose would be to share information and to facilitate cooperation in research and educational projects for peace. The region is meant to include those of the Brock, Guelph, Toronto and Waterloo Chapters and the area roundabout. Probably such an affiliation would want to set up periodic meetings to keep in touch. (This seems especially important since, if the National Executive is moved to Vancouver, it seems likely that there will be less frequent Board meetings in Toronto. These meetings helped in the past to maintain at least some contact between the Chapters of the region.) At any rate, the meeting announced here is for the purpose of considering the most effective form for such an affiliation. All members of Science for Peace in the region are invited, and urged, to attend.

Janet Wood and colleagues have very kindly arranged this founding meeting. In addition to discussing SCORASP, the meeting will hear reports from two speakers about their recent activities.
