As a member of the Hamilton & District Aquarium Society you will receive by email or regular mail (your choice) each year 10 issues of our monthly bulletin. (Not published in July or August) Every effort is made to ensure that the bulletin arrives in time to serve as a reminder of the upcoming meeting.

The bulletin contains articles on various aspects of our hobby as well as information on numerous hobby-related events such as shows or auctions being held by other clubs within our general area. The bulletin also contains information about our own members activities and accomplishments and general club news.

As much as possible we attempt to publish articles written by our own members and everyone is encouraged to try their hand.

The bulletin is financed by the sale of yearly ads (your help in this area would be appreciated) and we encourage our membership to patronize our advertisers and mention the club when you do. We also distribute the bulletin to advertising pet shops in the area and we exchange publications with other aquarium societies both near & far (from Brantford to Australia)

H&DAS is beginning a new initiative in the form of an Emailed electronic version of our Monthly Bulletin, which you will find attached to this message. Take a look, and if you like what you see, then perhaps you would consider receiving the electronic version instead of the regular paper copy in the mail each month. Here are some of the benefits to switching:

1) Saves paper – Help preserve the environment!
2) Cost Savings to the H&DAS – in the form of reduced printing bills and reduction in the number of stamps purchased
3) Full Colour – As opposed to our paper bulletin, you will get to see all photos in colour. Some electronic issues may feature bonus content not included in the regular bulletin.
4) Less Clutter – No more piles and piles of paper bulletins taking up space on your bookshelves.

To start receiving your bulletin in your Email, HDAS members can contact and indicate that you no longer want a paper copy mailed.
