The Evolution of a Newsletter

The evolution of a newsletter – In 2004, PAMSC decided to issue a quarterly newsletter for its members with notices of upcoming events, updates of requirements and articles. The first issue was one A4 page, and the editor was Ar. Ng Chee Wee. Since then Intersection has gone through several evolutions with different editors; Ng Chee Wee, Dominic Chuo, Steven Mong took turns to edit and expand the coverage of the newsletter, which was in part due to the expansion of the chapter’s activities; the study trips, design forums and later the Building Trade Show (BTS) increased the number of pages.


In 2009, under the editorship of Ar. Ivy Jong there was an distinct shift in the stature of Intersection, moving away from simple reporting to proactive creation of new serialised columns and feature articles. The editorial team worked closely with two other subcommittees; Graduates and IT to highlight the local architectural scene, to give a platform to young firms trying to make a mark, to give a voice to women architects and to give coverage to the entire state of Sarawak, also to put on record some of the works done by Sarawak architects in the various decades.


This continued when the magazine was under my care. The newsletter grew to 20-24 pages including advertisements and circulation increased to more than 300 copies per issue, with online copies available on the PAMSC website.
