REPORT OF THE ASSISTANT SECRETARY

Dr Laughead reported on the AJOG advisory meeting held in San Francisco during the ACOG meeting in May. There were only 3 Societies represented at the meeting when the information was presented concerning the printing of the informal and formal discussions. She felt it would take a concerted effort of all the societies to try and influence these decisions. A number of fellows expressed concern about the changes and wanted to try and at least continue to publish the formal discussion.

Phil Patton the Editor of Scientific Proceedings advised the fellows that the main concern regarding either of the discussions revolved around the fact the papers usually have been revised to reflect many of the comments in the discussions to the point that they no longer appeared to make any sense.

The fellows discussed options of continuing to record and transcribe the discussions and including them on the website. This will be evaluated and brought back to the Board at a later date.

NEW BUSINESS

I. BY-LAWS CHANGES Secretary Shefren read the BY-LAWS changes that were sent to the membership over the summer. The changes were unanimously accepted by the fellows.
