BUSINESS ARISING FROM THE MINUTES

PRESIDENT'S REPORT

Alvin Finkel thanked David Frank and Raymond Leger for taking the lead in organizing the annual workshop. He also thanked the members of the Forsey Prize committee for this past year (chair Jim Naylor, Donica Belisle, and Denyse Baillargeon) and asked for people to serve for next year. He introduced this year's winner, Julia Maureen Smith. Finkel commented that one of the two honourable mentions for this year's CHA Macdonald Prize was Sean Mills, The Empire Within, which is based on Mills's PhD thesis which was awarded the Forsey Prize in 2009. The other honourable mention also went to a labour history book, Joan Sangster's Transforming Labour: Women and Work in Postwar Canada.

Finkel also commented on the Ottawa Workers' Heritage Centre campaign in which CCLH joined with others in an unsuccessful attempt to persuade Ottawa City Council to maintain the house for the museum. Rhonda Hinther noted other means are being explored for maintaing the museum and said that she will keep CCLH posted.

Other news: CCLH has incorporated. There are three new titles in the CCLH series with Athabasca University Press: Bert Whyte, Champagne and Meatballs, Alvin Finkel, Working People in Alberta, and David Frank and Nicole Lang, Labour Landmarks in New Brunswick/Lieux historiques ouvriers en Nouveau Brunswick.

EDITOR'S REPORT

Bryan Palmer welcomed Donica Belisle, who becomes the new book review editor on 1 July 2011. He thanked the members of the current editorial board for their work and particularly outgoing assistant editors Jim Naylor and Jeff Taylor, and outgoing review editor Alvin Finkel. He also announced that an advisory board to the editor has been created.

Palmer is currently working on the next SSHRC grant application, and it is almost in final form.

Palmer thanked the staff of Athabasca University Press for all their help and support.

LLT, he noted, is generally doing very well, with its readership, according to most indicators, is on the upswing. He continues to encourage graduate students to subscribe, noting that the journal's low subscription rate for students makes it a good buy.

Encouraging submissions, Palmer noted that the journal is constantly trying to expand its readership base with a broader range of articles, while continuing to maintain its identity as a labour studies journal. …
