June 2009 Minutes 29 Jul 2009 by the NC
The June, 2009 Minutes have been posted for review to the national website at: http://usgenweb.org/business/AB-06-2009.shtml
If there is no objection or corrections the minutes will stand approved July 31, 2009, 6:00 p.m. CST
30 Jul 2009 by Sherri Bradley
Corrections for the June minutes:
The top 'box' on the left (says links to minutes) says May 2009 instead of June 2009.
Under Motion 2008/09-19, those voting says N/A, but "Those not voting" says Jason Mendenhall. Under motion 2008/2009-20, Jason's name is not listed as having voted 'yes'. I believe the "those not voting" that is showing up under motion 2008/09-19 actually should be tied to motion 2008/09-20.

Thank you Sherri. I will have Jeff and Linda look into it and make the necessary corrections.

30 Jul 2009 by the NC
Having had the corrections made to the June minutes, the June minutes are approved and are available at http://usgenweb.org/business/AB-06-2009.shtml

MOTION 2009/09-22 COMMENDATION - DISCUSS ADMINISTRATORS 23 Jul 2009 By Phyllis Rippee, 2nd Concetta Franco Phillipps
"All too often volunteers who serve in special positions go unthanked for their efforts to provide a necessary service for the Project members. I think that it is time that the AB started thanking these volunteers for their service, therefore.....
I move that the AB, by general consent, extend a very special THANK YOU to Alice Allen and Betsy Mills for their excellent and fair administration of the Discuss List and commend them for their efforts to keep the discussions there respectful.
