19 Nonprofit & Voluntary Sector Q. 1 (1990)

handle is hein.journals/npvolsq19 and id is 1 raw text is: 


This issue, like the last, features papers presented at the annual confer-
ence of the Association of Voluntary Action Scholars (AVAS). My com-
ments  reinforce those offered in the last issue: AVAS is a lively and
productive scholarly organization; participation in its conferences gives
members   an opportunity  to share their work with  colleagues and to
present it through the medium   of NVSQ;  readers of this quarterly are
invited to join AVAS, a dedicated and growing band of researchers.
   The  papers in this issue were presented at AVAS's 1988 conference.
Many  people worked  hard to make that conference a success. The contri-
butions of Delwyn   Dyer, then AVAS  president, and Milton Boyce, the
conference chair, were particularly noteworthy.
   After the conference, Kenneth Perkins accepted the charge of the AVAS
board to edit the conference issue. He was joined by Thomasina Borkman
and Richard  Sundeen. The  work  of this committee is represented in the
excellence of the present issue.
   Perkins and  his committee  reviewed thirty-four papers presented at
the AVAS  conference and  identified six as prospects for publication in
NVSQ.   Five of these papers are presented in the current issue. The sixth
will appear in a forthcoming issue.
   I am particularly grateful to Ken Perkins and the committee for their
diligent efforts. We have now reached the point where every paper pre-
sented at the AVAS conference is reviewed, its author willing, for possible
publication in the conference issue. Many  papers not selected for the
conference issue are revised, in light of the comments provided to their
authors, for regular submission to this quarterly. This double opportunity
to advance toward publication in these pages is just one reward of active
participation in AVAS. All readers of NVSQ are most cordially invited to
join the association.
