  • Philip: Called Sam at AH and left message. Making progress on Directors insurance.
  • Dan: Weird membership issues due to problems left over from older user database. He is working on tracking it down.
  • Ski: Can charter members renew their charter membership by paying back dues. Board decided yes. Need to record as large membership if civicrm and manually fix the membership dates.
