NEW INTERNATIONAL BOOK ON DREAMS AND SPIRITUALITY
IASD members from around the world have contributed to a new text edited by
Kate Adams, Bart Koet and Barbara Koning.
Dreams and Spirituality is a pastoral handbook that offers a
comprehensive overview of the nature of dreams as understood from a range of
diverse professional perspectives. It enables ministers, spiritual directors
and counsellors to understand the nature of dreams and the role they play in
the lives of those in their pastoral care.
In this issue, Hot Off the Press explores dreams and artificial
intelligence. The intention of this column is to publish links to
evidence-based scientific articles that are written for a non-research
audience in the study of dreams.

THE 2015 IASD ANNUAL INTERNATIONAL CONFERENCE, VIRGINIA BEACH: THE DEPTHS OF DREAMS WRAPUP
IASD would like to thank all of the wonderful staff and volunteers personally for the terrific job you did on this year’s IASD International Conference which made it an astounding success. We had 270 attendees from 16 countries around the world, and presenters from 14 countries.
IASD would like to thank the many volunteers who worked to make this conference possible, particularly the members of the core Conference Committee, its chair Bob Hoss, and the support team - without them this event would not have been possible: Robert Gongloff, Richard Wilkerson, Laura Atkinson, Sylvia Green-Guenette, Jean Campbell, Bobbie Ann Pimm, Katja Valli, Alan Siegel, Dani Vedros, David Gordon, Jeff Armano, Geoff Nelson, Ryan Hurd, Janet Garrett, Curt Hoffman, Dale Graff, Catherine Campaigne.
We also wish to thank our forty-one pre-conference and onsite
volunteers who performed masterfully and without whom the conference
would not have gone as smoothly as it did. A major thank you to our
twenty submission evaluators, the dream experts who are largely
responsible for the final structure of the program, and who give totally
of their own time and talents to support the conference program. And
finally we wish to thank the presenters and attendees who made
the conference a success, without you there would not have been a
conference. We hope to see you back with us next year at the Rolduc
conference center in the Netherlands.
The officers nominated by the Nominating Committee to serve in the
coming year were introduced to the membership at the General Membership
meeting at the annual conference. They are as follows: Scott Sparrow,
Board Chair; Susannah Benson, President; Laurel Clark, Vice-President;
and Robert Waggoner, Treasurer. These officers are the voting
members of the Executive Committee.
The five new member-elected directors were also introduced: Claude Desloges, Jordi Borras Garcia, Clare Johnson, Misa Tsuruta and Mary Melinda Ziemer.
Directors serve for a period of three years, and the new directors’ terms will expire in 2018. The practice has been to have 15 directors who are elected by the membership. Rather than replacing the entire Board every three years, and to maintain a cadre of experienced directors, it has been the practice of IASD to arrange it so that we only replace five directors each year.
In addition to the 15 member-elected directors, four to seven of our board members can be directly appointed by the Board. The Nominations Committee recommended two nominees for board-appointed positions: Jean Campbell and Robert Waggoner. At the February Board meeting, the Board accepted the recommendations and passed the resolution that the number of Board-appointed directors will be seven for 2015-2016. All officers and new board members assumed their positions at this first board meeting.
The Nominations Committee wishes to acknowledge and appreciate all the Directors whose terms of office ended in 2015 and thanks all the Board candidates who agreed to stand for election.
The after conference price is $40 for the complete set. Workshops not included.

The regional reps that attended the annual conference
in Virginia Beach enjoyed a successful Regional Reps Luncheon on Sunday
June 6, 2015. It was a great opportunity to meet and greet each other
and discuss strategies for the coming year. A special thanks to
Lou Hagood for joining us and sharing his experience with
hosting a very successful and profitable regional conference in New York
in May. He was a great encouragement to others. There’s already talk
among some reps about hosting a regional conference in the near future.
Speaking of meeting and greeting, I have found the
Yahoo Group that we have set up for regional reps to be a valuable
communications tool and would like to see every one of our reps join the
group. If you are a regional rep and are not currently a member of the
iasd-reps Yahoo group, please send me an
email and I will send
you an invitation to join us.
If there is no rep for your region, please consider joining us. Send me an email for more information.
Regional Representatives Network
Please check the IASD website for up-to-date names and contact information for the regional representative in your area. The Regional Representative webpage is divided into regions, making your search more user-friendly.
If you do not have a Regional Rep for your area, consider volunteering to become one! You could serve an important networking role for IASD.
To volunteer to become a Regional Representative or for corrections or feedback on member contacts from Regional Reps, contact Bobbie Ann Pimm at firstname.lastname@example.org
