ALAI’s 2009 (biennial) congress takes place in London in June this year, to commemorate the 300th anniversary of the Statute of Anne (that shouldn’t stop you also letting off fireworks on 10 April 2010). Details here. Unfortunately, we in Australia no longer have a national group; but it is still possible to be an individual member or just go to the conferences etc.
Sorry about the break in transmission – some glitch in a database somewhere meant that only files up to 13 August were showing up. Thanks to Jacques, everything seems to be back on an even keel now.
