Ron Stewart made introductions. ATHEN was chartered in 2003, started at CSUN.
Heidi Scherr presented the Treasurer's Report. We started with $3472.04, and ended the year with 3447.96. We have a payment of $2500 to make to AHG, but we will receive any memberships that were paid for in conjunction with registration for AHG.
Memberships are due at the time of the AHG Conference. Institutional Membership renew on December 1st. This may need to be clarified with Joe. Membership this year was 72 paid, 11 institutional members, 9 associate members, and 2 honorary members. 21 renewals and 18 new members paid through their conference registration. Based on these numbers, we are over 100 members for the first time.
We need to have a nominating/election committee put together to run future elections. There is a conflict of interest when the President is running the elections. Ron asked for a volunteer. No one offered at the meeting. Ron asked for anyone interested to email him at Ron@AHEAD.org. We need to elect a President and Secretary in this election.
