Why can't I access the Committee area?

The committee area is reserved for BAAL committee members. It contains pre-publication documents which are being circulated among committee members for discussion, and organisational documents such as the letterhead and compliments slip. Anything that is of interest to members will be transferred to the members area or main pages as soon as possible.

Who do I contact if I have problems with BAALMail?

Email the BAAL administrator, Jeanie Taylor (Dovetail).
