Thanks to Vic and Yann for editing the Grower Agreement
-Changes: Removed unnecessary information on growing guidelines because it is already verified that growers know how to grow Sarracenia; we also have growing guides available on the website.
-Some of the information can be moved to a "Best Practices" document in the resources section of our website for reference only.
-Yann would like it to be clarified that plants are the property of NASC, including propagules (seeds and cuttings).

Sheila opened a new bank account at Trustmark National Bank and received the check from our closed account at Bank of America. Both Sheila and Emily will be signatories on the account; Emily has been sent the signature card but has not yet received it.

We have had three sales at the NASC merchandise store. Paul's sample merchandise has been ordered and Ryan has been reimbursed for the items. Mark has reported that design does not look the best on the black shirt, like it's peeling off. Ryan will contact Printfection to get satisfactory service.

Reminder that elections are coming up on January 12.

Ended at 9:56 PM Eastern.
