Annual Budget - being prepared by Mollie Proctor


Guide book updates - We have a 'proof' from the lady who is making the updates to our Holywater book, so the book review committee can meet to finalize.

Merger - Jim Zyla has met with Tom Quail to inform him that our chapter is exploring a possible merger with another TU chapter. Jim will approach the Paul Young chapter first.

New Business:

Location and promotion of our March speaker (Dennis Potter) to be handled by Greg. Send notices to the presidents of the other SE Michigan chapters, Jim to send digital file of Dennis's bio so I can include it in the notices.

Letter to be sent out to our membership advertising an open board position and the need for a map worker.
