Secretary Report:

1.         Dues invoices have been sent out.  Dues payments are coming in steadily. There is still plenty of time in fiscal year to bring dues up to balance.

2.       Membership Update:  87 members.  At our last special Board Meeting, membership was 91.  About 1/3 have paid (/$8,030).  Outstanding balance is \$16,155

3.       Am in the process of re-verifying correct addresses and email addresses for all members.  It is a time consuming project.  When I finish it, we will look at problems with members receiving emails and billings
