NEW! 14th December 2006: The RexxLA Board is pleased to announce the appointment of Howard Fosdick as the RexxLA Editor. This appointment will be effective immediately until elections at the Annual General Meeting at the 2007 Rexx Symposium.


The RICE (RexxLA Internet Collaboration Effort) has begun. This is a project to bring all of the RexxLA Internet resources together into an environment under which we, RexxLA, have more control, and to be able to provide more services to our members.
A project plan (PDF) outlines the activities and progress of this effort. Comments via the members mailing list are welcome.
