Minutes of the African Proverbs Working Group Executive Committee Meeting on Sunday, 7 February 2016 at Maryknoll Society House, Westlands, Nairobi, Kenya
The meeting started with a prayer said by Elias Bushiri in the Bembe language.
The Way Forward
Following a review of the APWG meeting held on 30 January 2016, the committee made several proposals.
Verification of projects
The members agreed that in the verification process various these issues should be considered:
Payment of grants
The meeting agreed that payment for grants should be made during the next full APWG meeting.
Editing of the electronic and printed work
The committee agreed to thoroughly scrutinize all the projects presented by the members. Serious errors such as omission of pagination would require the member to re-print the booklets. All corrections required will be communicated to the individual writers of the projects.
The committee proposed that each individual member be requested to pay a 10% charge for the editing of individual members’ work. Some of the work was poorly done, and required a lot of editing before it could be accepted for presentation. This suggestion would be tabled during the next full meeting.
