The Annual General Meeting that was called to order by Wesley Devoto, OBE, Chairman of the Board. First order of business was the presentation of the slate of officers and board members by the Chairman of the Nominating Committee, Grace Sanders, to be voted on by the membership. The Nominating Committee had worked hard to put together an excellent roster of candidates. A vote was called for to approve the nominees, and they were approved unanimously. A listing of the new Board can be found on the "About Us" page of this website.
Some committee chairpersons gave reports on the activities of the past year, and the President, Don Pattillo, talked about the achievements and changes that had gone on during the last 12 months in addition to his vision for the future of our branch. The Treasurer, Charles Maddrey, gave us his report on the finances of our branch which is in very good condition. Thanks to the generosity of our members, we were able to give a $5,000 scholarship plus airfare to our current TLAB recipient who will attend Oxford over this summer.
