Year of Controversy:
– a member was expelled for plagarism after committee reviewed works submitted and was found to have substantially plagarised the works of other authors
– this took a lot of time and resources, and the committee determined that members were not sufficently covered by a policy relating to this
– there is now a RWA policy / Code of Conduct to deal with plagarism
