For any others who, like me, were unable to find the JBS web site:  I 
have learned that it is only open to members (which is not true for this 
listserve - I hope).  If one is for any reason unable to be a member, 
one cannot obtain the password.

Many thanks to Keith for explaining this to me, as I had spent some time 
trying to find the site.

As for suggestions about expanding the JBS membership and outreach, my 
own personal experience (strictly as an outsider) is that JBS has many 
wonderful members (and an occasional excellent program open to the 
public) but for various reasons the organization as a whole does not 
seem particularly interested in encouraging new members.  I should be 
clear that since I do not meet the requirements for membership (I am 
somewhat disabled and not nearly knowledgeable enough) others' 
experience may be quite different.
