Hi group -- the polls have closed for voting for Directors for the JJA's 
Interim Board. The results aren't yet tabulated, but will be posted at 
Jazzhouse.org and e-mail later today. In response to some queries during the election 
period, committees are being formed to:

1) create a membership survey
2) work on setting up a JJA mentorship program, which includes a scholarship 
component in the name of late jazz journalist Clarence Atkins
3) initiate and encourage local chapter formation and activities.

If you have any desire to be on any of those three committees, I'll serve as 
info conduit so write me back --

Meanwhile, here's the scoop on the New York JJA's Jazz Matters panel 
tomorrow, Wed. Nov. 10: 6 to 8 p.m., New School Jazz performance space, 55 W. 13th
