<<The joint directory was "official" for a couple of years. Results were
disappointing both to the Guild and to the member advertisers. GNSI did not
get the exposure that it expected - or was promised. At that point, the
Guild wasn't sure what to do: try to do the directory again without the AMI,
continue with the joint book, go to web pages instead, etc. To my
knowledge, no decision has been made about what direction to go with this.
In the meantime, Serbin has continued to put out the directory and include a
natural science illustration section. GNSI members were told that they could
do it if they wanted to - since it did provide a way of advertising - but it
was no longer the official Creative Source. I assume this arrangement stands
- that GNSI members can do it if they want but that it isn't actually "THE"
Thanks Lynette for the input. I too saw the combined copy of the AMI and
Nat'l Science Book and had to say I thought the GNSI members seemed to get
less than equal representation , and missed the old format of the separate
GNSI Sourcebook. Any info on this topic would be appreciated.
Thanks again, Nancy
