Corrections from the October Minutes:

  1. Under New Business bullet number 7 talks about an “Amendment to the By-Laws” This should be changed to a “New Standing Order”
  2. Under New Business bullet number 2 should show the Thrivent Sponsorship being taken care of by Carol Gutbrod instead of Jani Burton.
