Renovation Mails First Progress Report

The 2011 Worldon’s Progress Report #1 was mailed this week. But if you’re the kind of fan who can’t wait for a paper copy to come in the mail, you can read a PDF copy online right now. (Same applies if you aren’t even expecting a copy in the mail because you’re coincidentally not a member. Oops, I blabbed.)

I recommend Patty Wells’ “Chair’s Message,” which hits a real grace note.

The full press release follows the jump.
