  • The NASC Benefit Auction 2013 on Terra Forums will be moved to March 30th to April 13th (a few weeks earlier than usual). By holding the auction earlier it will hopefully ease the stress on plants during the shipment process to auction winners.
  • Discussion and selection of a beneficiary to the auction is underway.
  • Discussion of another Member-at-Large took place. This role would help with the Benefit Auction and discovery of possible beneficiaries in the future.
  • The article for the BACPS newsletter is being written.
  • Mark was contacted to help clear brush on a property.

Meeting ended at approximately 9:50 PM
