NEW BUSINESS:
      The NOMINATING COMMITTEE which consists of Rick Groves, Jim Hall, and Jean Zielinski have been contacted
regarding getting nominations for the offices of President, Vice-President, Secretary, and Treasurer.    If you are

      Our Treasurer, Jolly Ann Whitener, gave us a reminder that MEMBERSHIP DUES are to be paid by the end of

BOA PLEA BY EXECUTIVE PRESIDENT, SHIRLEY BLAIR:    Shirley thanked everyone for their cooperation and she
brought brochures for all.  She stated that MAB is due to host a BOA International Rally in the fall of 2019
(preferably September).  She reminded us that we can use the Roo Valley Volunteers. There was some discussion
on this proposal but no decision made by MAB members.  

Apparel Sales of MAB t-shirts, hats, sweatshirts etc:  A suggestion
was made by Lynn Blair that we let each individual buy their own item  from a vendor that MAB chooses to work
with.  This will eliminate the need of a volunteer handling the details and the chapter would fund the set-up fee.  
Steve Rittenhouse will check into it for us.   

BOA INTERNATIONAL RALLY AT LEBANON, TN On SEPTEMBER 24-28, 2018:  In the past, we have contributed,
as a chapter, a basket to be donated at the BOA Rally.  After some discussion, a motion was made by Pat Robison
and seconded by Jolly Ann Whitener, that Mid-America Bounders donate two $25.00 Walmart gift cards out of our
treasury and then individuals who wish to can donate a gift or basket on their own.  Motion passed.
