New ideas are always welcome. See the New Business Procedures on the left to learn how to bring recommendations forward.
This is the general meeting for all members. Speakers may be scheduled, and there is a social time with possible refreshments. Voting actions by the membership at large may occur at these meetings. Each meeting is limited to one hour, and the business time at this meeting will be extremely restricted. Any new business will likely be deferred to the Executive Board Meeting.
