FEBRUARY 2008 MINUTES

14 February 2008
Tucson, Arizona

 BOARD MEETING

Board Members present: Anna Domitrovic, Virgil Lueth, Tony Kampf, Penny Williamson, Jeff Post, Jamie Newman, Terri Ottaway, Terry Huizing

The meeting was called to order at 2:00 –ish pm by president Virgil Lueth

Domitrovic presented the treasure's report. According to the roster the membership is 147 however 66 are in arrears for 2 or more years. Rather than sending out a general notice about membership dues, it is better just to target those people in arrears. Also the list on the website may not be accurate. We now have PayPal and fees for this service have been waived as we are non profit (501C3). The membership should be aware that you don't need to have a PayPal account in order to pay dues this way.

Lueth reported that he's not aware of any problem areas on the collections front (none at risk).

Newman spoke about how the California Mining Museum is slated to be shut down because of state wide budget cuts. This museum has a great collection â€ââ‚ÃÆâ€ââÃÃ
