*wait to see if we need one if we use NetPost

The slate was approved, following a brief discussion of some of the positions. Mona will notify American Mensa of the change in officers. It was noted that the SIGHT coordinator is appointed by National Mensa, and Barbara will retain that position.

  1. If the NetPost issue does not meet our standards, we will go back to using Staples. We could print one more issue at Staples, regardless, in order to use the money. (Tom volunteered to be Publisher for the one issue.)
  2. If the Staples "dollars" can be used on something other than copy fees, it was agreed that it could be spent on software, which would be used by the Editor and/or the Webmaster. Another suggestion was to spend it on stationery or mailers for corresponding with our members.

This issue will be resolved via e-mail before our next Executive Board meeting.

The meeting adjourned at 9:05.

Respectfully Submitted,

Margie, Executive Officer
