The Bulletin!

Our newsletter, the CGS Bulletin has gone green!
Summer-Fall 2011 Newsletter

Partly in response to significant increases in publishing and delivery costs, and a number of complaints about the irony of an enviornmentally-aware organization using the US Postal service to deliver mail, we have decided to deliver it to you electronically. It will be sent out via an email attachment several times a year, and you can always find a copies here on our website.

If you'd like to support the pulp and paper industries, you are still welcome to print a copy of the bulletin and carry it proudly with you to Starbucks!
