Need to ask for member volunteers to fill these 3 positions for the year 2000:
Membership, Fund Raising, and Show Chairperson.  Please! and Thank You!
The Christmas meeting for December 14th will be a party to exchange bird-related gifts and to enjoy snacks (please bring one) and the season; place will be the Park Place Library.  There was some discussion regarding the possibility of having a Conure-specific show in the future.
There was discussion to change the next show catalogue in some fashion to generate more interest and money.
Suggestions for publicity were to make 'flyers' to hand out or to be given to bird buyers, to place notifications in local papers as to time/place of meetings, and possibly selling bumper stickers with the Club's logo and website.

Remember that the new Website includes a lot of information about the Club, and the address is in each newsletter.  January's newsletter will contain the password. Adjournment:  The meeting was adjourned at 8:15 p.m.Respectfully submitted,           Joyce Mayor, Secy.
