Highlights

The draft National Convention 2006 minutes were approved having been noticed by Secretary Harlos as still being in draft form. The results of the At-Large audit from the tight (and contested by some) At-Large race from the National Convention 2018 were announced, validating the convention results. Multiple committees were appointed and Robin Koerner gave a marketing presentation.
