2019 Midwinter Meeting Agenda and Documents

Board I             Sat. January 26, 2018, 1:00 - 5:00

Board II            Sun. January 27, 2018, 4:30 - 5:30

Meetings of the Board of Directors are open to all members in good standing who wish to listen and observe proceedings. Members are asked to respect the fact that directors have an agenda to discuss and there may not be time for new business. Members are welcome to sit in the chairs around the perimeter of the room so that directors can be seated together for conversing and vote tallies. Members are welcome to share their comments, ideas, requests, etc. during the “Information Forum” that begins each meeting. If there are a number of guests wanting to speak, it may be necessary to set time limits for speaking. Members may not introduce new topics or speak during the board's general business, unless called upon by the President for input.
