Annual Business Meeting - State of the Group Address

The Annual Meeting of Members is a big deal!

We vote on our board members, get updates from all the committees at work about things that have happened over the past year, and talk about plans for next year. This year, we are also voting on a minor change to the Bylaws to make our membership year coincide with our fiscal year.

Article II, Section 1a of the bylaws will be changed to read:

1. Meetings of the Members.

a. Annual Meeting. The annual meeting of the Voting Members of this Organization shall be held in Little Rock, Arkansas, during the month of December, with twenty-five (25) days’ notice to the Voting Membership in order to accommodate a meeting space or for other necessary reasons.

Only those with paid memberships of $20 for this fiscal year (1 May 2012 - 30 April 2013) can actually vote in this election. If you haven't paid your dues but would like to help out your group financially and vote, you can join up at this meeting. Any non-members who are interested in ASF are welcome to come hear about what we've been doing and where we're headed.

    I love the pic. Who's going to be the one to shout out "You lie!" while Susan is speaking?

      Olivia, it's disrespectful to yell it out before she's even speaking. Jeez. Have we no code of conduct here?
