Yes I am out here, and I saw the postings.
You are right, we do have a "canned" letter that leslie Becker sends from
the office for students who are interested in the Guild. The letter
however does not cover the range of questions asked in the orginal posting.
I think we also have a list of guild members who said they would be willing
to field questions about the GNSI, and the field of Natural Science
Illustration ( I think I remember Britts name on that list). I think The
best thing is to point them to this list serve. That letter was a lot to
ask one person to answer, but perhaps they can ask people on the list or
start a discussion about some of the topics so that people who have the
time can answer.
