ConChair Report: We are still having a con. Just had a meeting on Sunday. Next two meetings have been scheduled for December 16th and January 7th. Liaisons needed, but otherwise okay. Amy will be asking John Davis to do the program book. Also need to discuss hotel contract for 2019.

Old Business:

Incorporation: Vote tabled on whether or not to fold the organization and reincorporate as a 501(c)7. Time to be taken to further research the differences between various types of not-for-profit. Full face-to-face meeting in December to be the opportunity to vote.

New Business:

New meeting scheduled for January 16th prior to the Concom Meeting. Board meeting at 11am. Goal is for everyone to be face to face at that meeting. 

Suggestion from Eric for 2020 to consider the idea of giving out an award at the convention in order to raise the profile of the con and attract more interest. Potential idea to have a juried award of whimsical award topics. More research and discussion.

Discussion of options to do more publisher events.
