2011 Annual Report
During 2011 I had the pleasure to serve on the Electronic Publication Policy Committee (EPPC) with Aura Dean, Judi Randall and Ken Wildman. We discussed a wide ranging number of issues and developed policies that were approved by the NCA Board of Directors to cover the following areas:
• Amended the Content Management Policy to incorporate direction for edits and revisions of posted material and authorship issues.
• Created an Advertising Policy, and submission form for e-Notes and began accepting paid advertisements.
• Consulted with Newf Tide Policy Committee on an issue of unauthorized use of images by an outside website.
The committee continues to work on defining policy issues that arise as the NCA adopts more electronic communications and branches out into social media and develops a larger online presence. I look forward to continuing the productive work of this group. All of the policies developed by the EPPC can be seen online

2010 Annual Report
The EPPC has met regularly during 2010 to work on developing policies to address the electronic communications of the NCA. We have added to the Policy Manual, created in 2009, to create policies for those areas within the scope of influence and activity for the committee. The committee has been addressing each section covered under the areas of activity. During
2010 the committee has presented policies to the NCA Board regarding:
• online privacy
• electronic newsletter production
• electronic mailing lists
These policies have been approved by the NCA Board and can be seen on the EPPC page of the NCA website (http://www.ncanewfs.org/committees/pages/eppc.html).
I have greatly enjoyed working with the dedicated members of the EPPC and look forward to a productive 2011 as we work to complete the charge presented to us by the NCA Board.
