IAW 2018 — > The 5th International  Air Ambulance Week will take place  on
8-16  September.  The  event  is primarily  intended  to  help  support  and
generate  donations  for  flying medical  services around  the  world.   See
August  the  following  announcement  was  published  on  the  IOTA  website
(https://iota-world.org/):  “IOTA  Programme Structure  A.4.2  in  the  2018
Directory provides for a review of the list of  valid island groups to  take
place every five years. The last such occasion took place in  June 2014 with
the announcement made at the  50th anniversary celebration  of IOTA’s launch
the following month. It resulted in 11 new groups being added.
This time IOTA Management has decided to bring forward the review to  give a
chance for any  new groups  announced  to  be activated in 2019,  the target
year. The review process is scheduled to start with an  announcement of some
additions at this  year’s RSGB Convention  and  may  possibly finish  with a
top-up at next year’s Friedrichshafen Ham Radio event.
Any new groups will be very few  in  number, probably between  5 and 10.  It
should be noted that  only proposals  that meet  the  programme criteria  at
Sections B and C of the  IOTA Programme Structure  chapter  (2018 Directory)
will be considered and, as guidance, it is unlikely that any additions  will
be made to the Europe list because it is already generously covered.
Proposals for consideration should be sent to G3KMA  (g3kma[@]dsl.pipex.com)
by 1 October with a short  justification (one paragraph please) in  terms of
the programme criteria”. [TNX G3KMA]
