Second, our meeting
last Tuesday was well attended. We had a lenghty discussion with several ideas presented
the future of our association.
factor that everyone should be aware of is that effective with the January meeting, we will shift our
meeting time to the second Saturday of the month, beginning at 8:00 a.m.
I realize that any time change will impact some in a positive way,
and some negatively. This day and time change
may or may not become permanent.
I would like to present a few of the positive reasons for meeting

do not work on Saturdays, and that may make it more convenient to attend.
evening meetings cause us to stay up later, and may cause us to be antsy to leave.

- Meetings beginning in the a.m. on Saturday leave open the possibilities
of including longer classes and/or
certifications if and when they become available. I believe these can much more easily be
scheduled during our "normal" meeting date, because those that would present them would more
be available on Saturday, and the meeting
time more open ended.
- Regular meetings, which normally take about two hours or less,
may be less interfering with the rest of
the day. With a regular meeting on Saturday,
we should be done around 11:00 a.m.
is set in stone, and as we see the need to make further changes, the membership will do so. I
am looking forward to trying this.
Please to not delay in registering for the banquet.
