I'm kindof curious about the current state of the NASC. I often hear "we're getting this project established via back-channels." Well I am quite eager to see this project finally be established and I wish someone would shed a little light on the progress of the NASC.
•How is everything coming along?
-how close are we to... well... whatever we need to be close to? Is this a bonde fide conservancy yet? How is that going? Have there been any road bumps on the path to getting this project up and running?
-what about membership and so on? How exactly may that work?
-any prospective sites for housing the collection?
-is there a mission statement? (a REAL mission statement... not rambling propaganda)
-anyone developing a website?
