                      Diary / Directory issue
                      ---;  -----------------------

 The last issue promised developments in the 'delivery' of EA.
 We now have our own site, and are still in the process of doing trial runs. All archive material has been copied over to our new site computer.
 We are though still reliant on our host computer as a gateway to the net.
 Just as this issue was about to be sent out the main hard disc on our host shredded itself. Fortunately no archive material was lost.
 Some incoming and outgoing e-mails may have perished in the spool files on that disc. Please resend, or query any lack of a reply.
 Otherwise apologies for the late delivery of this our first Diary/Directory issue. The plan is to publish without news but with a fuller diary and directory every third issue. The two intervening issues will then have more topical diary and directory entries with the traditional short news pieces.

 All contributions to this DIARY are welcome. It is both for the individual arbitrator and for those who plan meetings.
 Generally, listed meetings will be at least half-day and usually full day events. Evening meetings are likely to be only of local interest.
 The emphasis is European: However to help in scheduling, major world events are listed.

 As this issue is being prepared I have received the sad news of the death of Renato Casalotti, in a road accident, in London.
 Renato was a founder member of the European Branch of the CIArb. Serving as its treasurer since then, and -not least- organising two very successful meetings for the Branch: most recently the Rome meeting of autumn 1996.
 An appreciation will appear in the next issue. Our condolences to his widow, Franchesca, and their children.

COPY DATE for next issue: July 25th.
