• FinTAStic Newsletters

    FinTAStic, the official TAS newsletter, is a quarterly electronic publication with four issues annually.

    The Newsletter Committee published its maiden issue November, 2003. It was followed with another FinTastic issue in February, 2004. As much as we would love to have a regularly done quarterly edition, future releases will be published based on the time frame the volunteer team is able to provide.

    A "Trading Goodies" ads section is also available for members only to list any angelfish related sale or trade. All submissions may not make it depending on space- First come, first serve.

    All TAS members are encouraged to send any of your write-ups, inspiration, pictures or articles of anything angelfish-related. All article submissions, ads, announcements, etc. to be considered for inclusion should be emailed to Newsletter Committee at least 2 weeks prior to the announced deadline. A notice will be emailed out to all members by the TAS Secretary to provide this time once made known by the committee.

    We are always looking for writers or contributing authors, roving reporter (interview), circulation and marketing, DIY specialist, fund raising, graphics artist...but mainly, we need more articles to publish.

    Suggestions, questions or comments are always welcome and encouraged.
