REFLECTIONS ON BEING AN IASD BOARD MEMBER 

Katja Valli, Turku, Finland 

The Montreal conference is now over, but I came home with many warm and fun memories. I hope so did all the attendees! My personal thanks for the conference organizers, and especially, as a researcher, for the most interesting research track and keynotes!  

The annual conference marks a change for the Board, as the composition changes with some Board members retiring and new ones taking their places. The normal term for a Board member is three years, and our president is elected annually. The IASD thus has a new president, Olaf Gerlach-Hansen from Denmark. Welcome! Similarly, welcome all Board newcomers, and thank you retiring ones for your hard work in the past three years!  

Although for us Board members the conference was more than just fun, with two long meetings and lot of work, even the Board meetings were cozy. Jean Campbell, our past and present chair kept us focused on business with her bell, but even jokes were heard in between. Most surprisingly, the second Board meeting ended ahead of scheduled time, maybe for the first time ever. Thus, your new Board seems to be working efficiently under Jean’s command! 

The most important issue the Board had to deal with in the Montreal conference was the acceptance of the new revised Bylaws. The members who attended the Membership meeting accepted the new Bylaws unanimously, and thus, IASD Bylaws are now in accordance with the California laws for non-profit organizations. This is of utmost importance. Thank you, members! 

In the Montreal conference, next year’s conference location was revealed. In 2009, we will meet in Chicago, and the conference will be hosted by Jacquie Lewis, our E-news editor. So, mark your calendars, already!  

In addition to the main conference, many interesting regional conferences will take place in 2009. The most exotic regional is planned for Petra, Jordan, and many of us northern Europeans will meet in Gothenburg, Sweden, in March. Look for more news about regionals, and lots of other stuff, on IASD website: www.asdreams.org

 

IASD PSIBERDREAMING CONFERENCE SCHEDULED
SEPTEMBER 21 THROUGH OCTOBER


Go ahead and dream of the future --but don’t forget to SAVE THE DATE!!!

Since it began seven years ago, IASD's PsiberDreaming Online Conference has become one of the finest conferences available anywhere on the Internet. Reasonably priced and lots of fun, this year's online conference will run from Sunday, September 21 through Sunday, October 5 for two weeks of nonstop interaction and inspiration.  

The theme of IASD's PsiberDreaming Conference 2008 will be Dreaming the Future of Dreaming. Because IASD is celebrating its 25th Anniversary this year, co-hosts Jean Campbell and Rita Dwyer decided it would be very interesting to look back at the dreamwork of those past years and a look forward to what our dreams suggest the future might bring, particularly in the area of Psi Dreaming. Our presenters and attendees will represent many countries and disciplines, sharing news and views, as well as contributing to the artwork shown in our conference gallery and competing in contests, such as precognitive and telepathic dreaming.  

Call for Proposals Still Open

PsiberDreaming conferences involve paper presentations (approximately 10 pages), workshops, and other activities, scheduled each day of the two-week online conference. If you have an idea for a presentation, send the title plus a brief synopsis to Jean Campbell and Rita Dwyer at jccampb@aol.com, by August 30, 2008. Guidelines for presentation will be sent to presenters upon acceptance of their proposals. Presenters must agree to answer questions and interact with conference participants for at least two days after their presentations are put up online. 

Registration Begins Saturday, August 16

Due to the international nature of IASD, registration rates for the annual PsiberDreaming Conference are kept at a low cost: $40 for Nonmembers, $35 for Members, and $25 for students with valid ID. Even for people who cannot afford to attend each annual membership conference, this two-week online forum is a way to greet old friends and meet new ones. Invite your friends to become IASD members during the time of the PsiberDreaming Conference. New members who join IASD for the first time between August 16 and October 1 will receive a free pass to the online conference, and a firsthand look at why IASD is the most popular dream organization in the world. Register online at tinyurl.com/6j3qqa

 

CALL TO DREAM ARTISTS FOR PSIBERDREAMING ART

We wish to invite all dreamers who would like to share their dream-inspired artwork to participate in the 7th Annual PsiberDreaming Art gallery. This is an international open call for painters, photographers, conceptual digital designers, fiber artists, dream doodlers, etc. We are especially interested to see dream based artwork that falls into this year’s PsiberDreaming conference theme: Dreaming of the Future. Keep in mind that this is not a brick and mortar gallery. There’s no need to frame, wire, bang a nail into a wall. This online gallery will be open to PsiberDreaming online conference participants. Our needs are simple: jpeg images of your Dream-based artwork and a text narrative of the dream itself.  

The PsiberDreaming Art gallery is always a huge hit for participants and gallery visitors, drawing submissions from professional artists to submissions from those who are making their first attempt in a new medium. Please send jpeg images and text to Diana Thompson at dtwaaz@comcast.net for incorporation into the gallery. Early submissions are encouraged.

Eligibility: Original artwork in any medium about or inspired by dreams. This is open to ALL professional artists and non-artists. If you have connected artistically to a dream, through imagery, poetry, sketches, photography, or audio, you are welcome to submit your work to the gallery.

Limit: Maximum of five (5) images per artist. Children under the age of 18 must have a parental permission & signature to be included. Dream text MUST accompany all images. Images without dream text will not be considered.

Deadline: September 15, 2008

IASD NEEDS YOUR HELP IN
DREAMING THE FUTURE OF DREAMING

What will be the future of dream work in the next 25 years? This year IASD celebrates its twenty-fifth year as the premiere organization for dream study and dream activities in the world. This year's PsiberDreaming Online Conference celebrates the accomplishments of a dedicated group of dreamers by asking you to consider the future. What will dreams discover and what will dreamers accomplish over the next 25 years? 

We are asking you to think about this question, to DREAM on this question, and then submit your answer to us in no more than four paragraphs by September 5, 2008. That's four paragraphs by the fifth, right? 

The Dreaming the Future of Dreaming document we create from your answers will become a part of the PsiberDreaming Conference, and our gift to the future of dreams. Please participate by sending your response to Conference co-host Jean Campbell at jccampb@aol.com

MEMBERSHIP NEWS JULY - AUGUST 2008


SPOTLIGHT on: Regional Reps Meet and Plan in Montreal

We did it! The Regional Reps network met in person for a short but momentous working lunch meeting in Montreal. Of our 50 Regional Representatives from around the world 35 attended the Conference and about 30 participated in this hour long meeting where we matched names, faces and geographic locations. A photo collage of most of the Reps attending was entitled “Meet Your Regional Contacts in Montreal” and it was posted in various locations in the hotel and shared at the meeting. Lots of folks said: “Where can we get a copy of this cool photo collage?” The answer is “watch for it on the IASD website in the Membership Section.” We’ll mount it as soon as we can add the pictures of the rest of our Reps to this fun “who’s who” Regional Reps page. 

The strong international character of IASD was wonderfully apparent in this meeting where we welcomed several new Reps from previously unrepresented countries including Dr. Mohammed Salem from U.A.E. and Shuhei Enomoto from Japan.  

In addition to these two we added five more to our network during the Conference: Elena Korabelnikova, Russia; Claude Desloges, Montreal, Canada; Sylvia Green-Guenette, Ontario,Canada; Katya Valli, Finland; and Jeff Vovillia, Michigan, USA. A few others have expressed interest in becoming a Rep and these are “in the works.” 

The photo collage and colorful ribbon flags we waved at the general membership meeting where this Regional Reps group was introduced added some fun and concrete visibility as a way to connect Reps with members from their geographic areas. It also emphasized the community that is developing among this group as it serves to increase regional activity and personal contact with our membership globally. And, armed with segmented lists of members from their regions prior to the conference, several of your Reps initiated small personal group meetings with their regional members during the conference. Thanks Lisa Madelle-Bottomley for the nudge to make this happen. Personal meet-ups at the Conference are sprouting some new regional meetings or event possibilities which we’ll nurture. Though time did not permit a regional lunch where all the members could sit with folks from their regions as well as their Reps, there was strong interest in doing this at the 2009 Conference, which we plan to do. 

We prepared for this meeting with a list of “seed ideas” which had been contributed by your Reps prior to Montreal. These ideas were reviewed and new ideas were elicited, recorded and in some instances, decisions were reached to implement them. Lauren Schneider and Rita Hildebrandt who were energized by their very successful Southern California Regional stepped right up to record ideas and take notes and Rita even volunteered to make contact with members we’ve lost track of whose membership has lapsed oftentimes because of changed email or postal addresses. Thanks to them and to everyone who contributed their ideas and energy to our meeting.  

In future columns we’ll present many of the ideas that were generated during this meeting but we’ll start with one in this column which is moving towards realization. Art Funkhouser, Switzerland, offered this suggestion prior to the Conference: 

“Idea: We once made a heroic effort and created international pages from a number of countries in a variety of languages on the IASD website. It would be great if those could be brought up to date and made more prominent on the IASD website.”  

Fortunately Richard Wilkerson was in the room to hear the group consensus that this would be a valuable thing to do and he agreed to work with Art and others who volunteered translation help for several language options on the IASD intro website page. Marco Zanasi & Dr. Mohammed Salem volunteered to translate in Italian & Arabic, respectively. Others interested in volunteering translation services for this purpose please contact Art Funkhouser art@funkhouser.ch or Jody Grundy grundyj@fuse.net. 

Finally, many thanks to Layne Dalfen, Bob Hoss and the catering staff of Hotel L’Auberge who went extra miles with logistical help to make this event a real success.

CONGRATULATIONS TO IASD'S NEW BOARD MEMBERS AND OFFICERS; THANKS TO THE IASD MEMBERSHIP


IASD would like to extend congratulations to new board members and officers who took office at the second board meeting of the Annual Membership Conference in Montreal, Quebec on July 12, 2008. These changes would not have been possible were it not for the cooperative work of IASD's membership in ratifying newly revised corporate bylaws and establishing revised Articles of Incorporation during the annual Membership Meeting held at the conference on Thursday, July 10. 

This legal step, ending a year of work on bylaws revisions from the IASD Board and particularly its Bylaws Committee, chaired by David Kahn, means that the organization is now fully in compliance with nonprofit statutes in the state of California, where IASD is incorporated. Thanks to all. 

Board members gaining office through membership vote this year were: Nick Brink (reelected), Ernest Hartmann, Deborah Hickey, Jacquie Lewis, and Gunnar Sundstrom (reelected). One of the changes necessitated by the new bylaws was that board officers must also be board members, requiring that the Board select a certain number of individuals to become board-elected board members. This number was set by the Board at seven. The following members, including five Board officers and two other new members were then elected to the Board, on the recommendation of this year's Nominating Committee: Jean Campbell, Chair; Olaf Gerlach-Hansen, President; Robert Waggoner, Vice-President/President Elect; Robert Hoss, Treasurer; Robert Gongloff, Secretary; David Kahn; Wendy Pannier. 

All new board members, including the seven board-elected members, will have terms of three years. Officers of the Board, who act (at the will of the Board) as the organization's management team, serve for only one year. Thus officers will be selected by the Board from among its members again next year, and each year upcoming. 

Complete information about IASD's revised bylaws can be found online at tinyurl.com/64bm78

THE "QUIET CAMPAIGN TO SUPPORT IASD”
 

The "Quiet Campaign to Support IASD" was announced at the Montreal Conference by President-Elect Robert Waggoner. After enjoying Rita Dwyer's nostalgic retrospective of IASD's 25 year history and growth, members were invited to support the future of IASD and dream study by contributing to the newly formed Heritage Fund. The objective of the Heritage Fund committee is to conduct "The Quiet Campaign" in which no one will be directly soliciting or calling members for donations; rather, the committee intends to quietly remind past and present members to promote the future of IASD and dreaming through gifts and bequests. So remember, when you see "The Quiet Campaign" and www.IASDHeritageFund.org, to consider IASD's impact on your life and how you can help future generations to experience that same impact.

To discuss supporting the future of dream research, education and outreach, contact any member of the IASD Heritage Fund committee:
Cynthia Pearson or Robert Waggoner, co-chairs
Jean Campbell
Rita Dwyer
Bob Hoss
Wendy Pannier
Bernard Welt

 

THANK YOU FROM LAYNE DALFEN, HOST FOR THE
“DREAMS WITHOUT BORDERS” CONFERENCE,
MONTREAL, CANADA, 2008

As there is hardly the time during this meeting to thank
Those who helped put this conference together top rank.
I must take then just a few minutes to say
That most of the time it was not work felt like play.
Top of my list and first to toast Bob Hoss; otherwise known as Soap Box Bob,
Say what you will, he does know his job.
This person dismayed me on occasion to see,
How even I so sure the one who was right it was me!
Well then wake up I had to for here he stood again,
98.9 percent of the time right to my shagrin!
But seriously Bob, don’t know what I would do,
Putting a conference together without the likes of you.
“Say it in fewer words, Layne” his sagest advice.
And yes he had to tell me that more than twice!
Laurette Dupuis a mythodical one. Nothing like me who loves to jump the gun.
“Let’s think about this,” she would offer, as there she sat,
Having to hear me say “Oh! I already did that!”
A balance we created as opposites often do.
No doubt somewhere in the middle was the learning so true.
Laurette was determined work the Program Schedule on line
Her idea it turned out Google docs was devine!
And a database manager no finer is there,
Sylvia Green-Guenette must have spent months in that chair!
By her computer so diligent no time to spare.
So accomplished is she and yet has no air.
Nicole Gratton program planner extra-ordinaire,
Claude Desloges at her side, they made quite a pair.
In putting together the track en Français,
Deserving a drink let's have Beaugelais
Multi-tasker she is that Nicole Gratton,
You should see her PR,
Aussi que c’est bon!
And wait she did the Dream Ball too,
Along with Kim Vergil, so talented new
To IASD oh how fortunate we,
To have such a firecracker another like me!
Like Nicole that Kim, multi-tasker as well, co-curated the art shows knew all who to tell.
Rose Maloukis and Linda Venne both curators too,
Two art shows created and what a to do!
Richard Wilkerson I know as Trusty RC,
Always there at the helm, speedy responses to me.
And the humor that went back and forth on the net,
Was for overwhelmed me to laugh a good bet.
He has the answers to everything tech,
And never lets on if you’re a pain in the neck!
RC’s accepting attitude rather say, “What the heck”!
And then there’s Liz Diaz
Put together our site like a whiaz!
Another who is there till wee hours of the night.
Always wanting to make sure it all looks well, just right.
There must have been emails two thousand an easy guess.
Liz able to come through at times what seemed like a mess.
And go see that site I beg all of you.
Pages and pages of smart work did she do!
And who did that French a bilingual site?
T’was Flavia Garcia worked all of her might.
I am flabbergasted, jealous, and so very impressed.
She's so fluently bilingual, who could ever have guessed?
Bernard Welt did logistics, told us where to go……
Well I don’t mean like that, I mean he's in the know!
The maps of the city did Irina Dynnik.
Believe me tailoring Google to suit us no picnic.
Another one new to IASD.
Much more of you, we'd love to see.
Jean Campbell, in advertising she stepped in late.
Me I was worried we so late out the gate.
A surprise she was I never knew,
An ad pro I had and a confident too.
The Countdowns you saw were Jean’s brilliant mind.
It seems it worked to enthusiasm wind.
And for me it was fun snapping pictures with those,
Who you’d meet here to help your stay as it goes.
Lana Nasser who I met in Bridgewater as part of my staff,
Who helped cut my work time there literally in half,
Was amazing to accept Staff Coordinator this time.
And believe me it’s hard those who drop out on a dime!
To work out the schedule a puzzler you must be,
And here you sit Lana, successful we see.
What a great job you did, for everyone glee!
Oh let us all thank your volunteers too,
For helping us all through the conference it’s true.
When I’m done like to give you all applause a big round.
Keeping all us attendees our feet on the ground.
Anne Frey, a dear friend, you are not the last.
That Dream Date Auction you did think of fast.
I dragged you in, though you thought you were through.
You have to admit a good time we had too.
But oh how you know to make money you do!
Hysterical laughing even in anger we knew.
While Richard was fielding registrations like mad
Demi Gilbertson was entering spreadsheets iron clad!
So easy to follow and boy was I glad.
We’ll miss you Dear Demi not here oh so sad.
Registration's team, Mimsi Lemar, Deborah Hickey
I’m resisting to say they are here for a quicky!
Seriously folks, organizational skills
Beyond recognition those beautiful girls.
The budget was run by the two both named Bob.
Wagonner and Hoss kept all costs in line to insure we don’t sob.
Last but not least is Mary Pat Lynch.
Editing skills to Mary a synch!
And a woman who so knows to step up to the plate,
A deadline freak…. We were never allowed late!
Ideas just flow right out of that head.
Meticulous worker understatement said.
Artist Catherine Champagne had it all put to bed this Program Book oh so easily read.
What proud moment you two must have had when you saw
That Program Book you created, I’m in awe!
So there you have it folks my committee you see.
If I hadn’t had you all would have been poor me!
A terrific conference and a team like no other.
It makes me feel proud just like a mother.

IASD Logo and link to homepage The International Association for the Study of Dreams is a non-profit, international, multidisciplinary organization dedicated to the pure and applied investigation of dreams and dreaming. Our purposes are to promote an awareness and appreciation of dreams in both professional and public arenas; to encourage research into the nature, function, and significance of dreaming; to advance the application of the study of dreams; and to provide a forum for the eclectic and interdisciplinary exchange of ideas and information.
