Welcome to the New Website

I would like to extend a great thank you to everyone who has dedicated their time and efforts into bringing the new 2011 website to life. This new site will certainly help us grow as an organization as we continue our mission of preserving the fencing arts for future generations of fencers, researchers, historians and historical enthusiasts.

General Membership Meeting, 2011

The AHF General Membership Meeting  is now Closed

I would like to start this meeting by welcoming all our new members to the AHF. We have many exciting projects planned for the AHF in the coming year.

This year’s major project has been the release of the AHF’s new website. I really like the simple yet elegant template it is designed around. Many thanks to Kim Moser, William Elder, Keena Suh, Jeannette Acosta-Martinez and Ben Miller for their tireless work on the past website and the content creation of our new and improved website. The current version of the site was created this summer by Stephanie Zimmerman who is our current webmaster. The site is built on a content management system which features an extended membership module, allowing for future growth and outreach opportunities for AHF members.

We have set up discussion boards for various meetings, committees and projects to discuss regular business. Discussions are currently managed by blog subject and post-comment threads. These are hierarchical, which means you can respond to a specific comment by clicking Reply under the comment itself (like this year’s official report), or you can reply to the overall post (or meeting in our case) by immediately typing in the comment field at the bottom of the meeting post.

The site contains a good bit of excellent information along with various articles and transcriptions of earlier fencing material. We should be posting additional articles, transcriptions and translations soon, as they are completed.

We have a busy year ahead of us and I look forward to working with everyone on growing the AHF in future years.

Next, the official report.

Cecil Longino
AHF President
