 The automatic alternation of roles between LAGB and BAAL was instituted in meeting #26, to start in #28. This transition is a solid fixed point in the chronology.
 The role of Secretary was separated at some point from that of Minutes secretary, who seems to have been a volunteer from any organisation.
 CLIE started life (and its numbering) as the Language Steering Group, sponsored by LAGB and BAAL as a result of a seminar on ‘Linguistics and language teaching in schools’ held at the North Worcestershire College in Bromsgrove 8-10 July 1978. Since Nov 1978 it seems to have met three times every year. The first terms of reference for CLIE are dated 1980, so this is presumably when the name changed.
