...the renewal is still being dealt with by the Chicago office. There seems to be an inordinate delay in getting it approved. I and someone from the University Registry have been in touch with someone in Chicago, but it is still not settled. It was supposed to start on May 1, 2007, but was delayed by your CR. Discussions now seem to be about how in the UK University system staff are paid - this differs from the US. This hasn't been a problem before, but seems the stumbling block now. The timing hasn't been helped by holiday breaks during July and August. I am still working on the assumption that it will be approved at some point. I will be coming to the meeting in Indianapolis, the week after next, but have had to pay for the flights from somewhere else - which I'll reimburse when it comes through. I have had to move the staff to get paid from elsewhere, which hasn't caused problems yet, but it will soon, if the issue isn't resolved by October. Best Regards Phil
