BUDGET

Secretary Shefren recommended that the dues for 2006 remain at $350. He also recommended that we pass on the exact cost of the AJOG to retired members who choose to receive it. He also recommended that we continue to charge the retired fellows $25 to cover the costs of any mailings during the year. A motion was passed unanimously on these items. A motion was made to eliminate the $150 initiation for new members and it was passed unanimously.

REPORT OF THE SECRETARY OF SCIENTIFIC PROCEDINGS

Phil Patton asked for a sense of the Board regarding the AJOG decision not to publish the informal discussions. There was considerable discussion but the Board felt there was not likely to be any change by the Journal on this. We will further discuss other options for putting the discussions on the Website at the Interim Board meeting. The Board recommended that we continue to publish the formal discussions at this time. The Board overall expressed more concern about making sure that the quality of the papers being sent for review were of the highest quality to increase the probability of publication. This will require an aggressive mentoring program since once the paper goes to the Journal the decision will likely be made early.

REPORT PROGRAM CHAIR 2006

Paul Kaplan discussed the format this year of including TA posters from those not designated as winners and eligible for a full TA designation. The Board was generally supportive of the effort this year but felt this needed more discussion and the Interim Board Meeting. Since these posters are usually not published he recommended that we issue some kind of certificate to the presenters acknowledging the poster presentation at the meeting.



ARRANGEMENTS CHAIR 2005

Ira Golditch reported that he felt the meeting was very successful and also felt that we would end up very close to budget. He recommended that all of the specific jobs for the meeting be codified to assist the next Fellows who will be performing those functions. Tom Powers recommended that consideration be given to the golfers who often miss the Caucus party because they get back to late. It was also recommended that we get high speed internet for the hospitality room for those needing it.

NEW BUSINESS

The terms for the nominating committee as proposed in the new By?Laws amendment were announced by President Burry. San Diego Arizona 3 years, San Francisco 2 years, Los Angeles 3 years, Seattle 2 years, and Portland 1 year.

President Burry recommended that we continue the discussion of the Long Range Planning Task Force at the Interim Board Meeting in March.



The meeting was adjourned at 3 PM
