A review of our Constitution and By-Laws will be done by a Professional Registered Parliamentarian. This review should be completed by the end of March and his recommendations will be presented to the membership for consideration and a vote at the business meeting during the August, 2008 Reunion.

It was agreed that we would pursue an academic records project in an attempt to locate other alumni for the Roster. Academic records are stored in Aledo and the Association will work with Aledo contacts to further investigate this project.
