We have cut expenses by switching to a different production process on siute at Hofstra that allows us to print only as many copies as we need. For the Winter-Spring 2012 Issue we printed 245 copies for NYS at a cost of $1.32 per copy or $323.40. 3rd class mailing was approximately 200 pieces x .68 or $136. Editor’s expenses remain set at $300 for a total of $759.40. New Jersey is billed separately by Hofstra.
For the Summer Fall 2012 and Winter Spring 2013 issues we have a full page add from the 4H Club that will reduce our expenses each issue by $250. This requires that we continue with hard copy printing.
I am trying to regularize on-line posting and have students in the process of posting 12.1 and 12.2 during the next month.
Summer-Fall 2012 is ready to go to press. I await updated mailing list with count
