Happy New Year to all map enthusiasts!


Rocky Mountain Map Society has a few changes to our stalwart directors.
Angel Abbud-Madrid continues as president, Jim Hensinger as vice-president,
Wes Brown as treasurer, and Lorraine Sherry as secretary/webmaster. Wes
Brown, our founder, replaces Chris Lane as new program coordinator.  Chris
Lane, Tom Overton, and Don McGuirk continue as directors, with Paul Mathias
as CONAMS representative and Myron West as antique map fair coordinator.


Winter 2016 activities will include the Miami Map Fair (
http://www.historymiami.org/visit/map-fair/) Feb. 5-7, and the RMMS meeting
at Denver Public Library ( <http://www.RMmaps.org> www.RMmaps.org) on Feb.
23. Several members will also be attending the Society for the History of
Discovery (SHD) meeting in Rhode Island, the Virginia Garrett Lectures in
Texas, as well as IMCoS and the various cartographic events scheduled for
Chicago in October.  


Chris Lane is planning an imaginative program for Map Month 2016 at Denver
Public Library in May and June, with the theme of "Mythology on Maps."  Jim
Hensinger will invite RMMS members and their friends to another "Cartifacts"
event at his clubhouse in Westminster, so please be thinking about sharing
your map-related artifacts at this popular summer social event.


Our current slate of presenters for regular RMMS meetings at Denver Public
Library includes Lorraine Sherry (Feb. 23rd) on Lithuania and the Baltic
States, and Chet Van Duzer (Nov. 15th) on Henricus Martellus' world map and
early cartography.


Please take the time to look at  <http://www.RMmaps.org> www.RMmaps.org for
the latest updates on RMMS activities.  We also have a Facebook page - just
search for "Rocky Mountain Map Society" on Facebook, and no, you don't have
to be a Facebook member to see it.


Best wishes for a happy, healthy, prosperous 2016.


Lorraine Sherry, Secretary
