 The dues will have to be raised, as the AHS is operating in the red.

"Modify publications"==this is Newspeak for cutting back on the budget of THE 
HOSTA JOURNAL to retain that worthless THE YEARBOOK.

:Committee to develop "Hosta Primer"--not a bad idea, although I think 
everyone should know that this is the brainchild of Bob Solberg. Such info 
could be put in an issue of THJ at little cost, rather than publishing a 
separate booklet. And you KNOW who will get the contract for publication of 
such.

As Ran points out in his posting, what about proxy and/or mail-in ballots?

In Jim Hawes posting which quotes from Jim Wilkins' posting to him, Jim wants 
input from the members. Many moons ago, I offered to donate monies for a 
garden award for the best grown species hosta in a tour garden. I never heard 
anything from anyone about this.

At any rate, the PGP is dead. Perhaps that decision justifies the amount of 
$$$ that members paid for the transportation expenses of those who attended 
the meeting, which, btw, was ultra vires the By-Laws.
