New Business

Article ideas:
Several ideas for articles for the remaining issues were discussed. Paula Rossetto presented an idea of adding cartoons by members of the society and the suggestion was well received. Carmen Cauthen suggested an expansion of the “Where Are They Now” section to include formerly active members, who, because of travel restriction, are no longer active. She agreed to research and establish contact with those members. We also discussed adding a graphic of which states are implementing furloughs and Hobie Lehman agreed to research the subject.

Paula Rossetto announced the deadlines for the spring issue. 


Upon a motion by  Eleanor Ringel (WV), seconded by Carmen Cauthen (NC), the meeting was adjourned.

Respectfully submitted,
Neva Parker (CA), Vice Chair
