March Council Meeting
At the meeting of the Council of the Polynesian Society in Wellington on March 12, 1984, Mr Pat Snedden of Auckland retired as Treasurer after three years in the position. The Council expressed its appreciation to Mr Snedden for his service to the Society. Ms Valerie Green of Auckland was appointed by Council as the Society's new Treasurer.
Offprints of Reviews
Beginning with this issue, contributors of reviews to the Journal will no longer be sent offprints of their contributions. Increased postal costs and the mechanical inconvenience of producing offprints are the reasons for this decision. The general availability of photocopiers now makes it easy for authors to produce copies of their reviews at negligible cost if they wish. Contributors of articles will continue to receive 20 copies.
