    OK...I have something I'd like to add to the agenda. [img]http://www.**********.com/iB_html/non-cgi/emoticons/new/smile.gif[/img]

    We have a lot going on right now hammering out the Growers Policy and a few other topics, but I think we need to start thinking about the auction. We've been holding it in May and that time will be upon us soon. So maybe we could discuss that a little bit. If we're going ahead with it as an annual event, we should start giving a heads up so maybe folks will cull a plant or two out of their collections for us. So far people have been very generous. We need to set a date and get it cleared with Phillip since he has to set it up.

    We also should discuss any problems we've seen in past auctions and how to fix them. Dutch auctions kinda got confusing...

    Maybe discuss setting up committees for working on other policies we need...and about future fund-raising.

    I wanna go!! Not sure I can swing it though. I need to do some investigating. Its not that far away from me but...I am a weenie when it comes to driving alone. [img]http://www.**********.com/iB_html/non-cgi/emoticons/new/confused.gif[/img]

    I think we should discuss taking all NASC's funds and using it to pay for all NASC members to go to the ICPS conference to meet each other.

    The auction should be a month earlier so Sarracenias and other temperate zone plants won't be so far into their new growth. An even earlier date would be better still for southern growers, but us northerners need time for our plants to thaw and show us they've survived.

    I think the only reason our two previous auctions were so late was auction start-up difficulties. Hopefully we can get it up and running much more easily this year; God & Phillip willing. Since I'm not likely to be around during the upcoming meeting, I'm chiming in now.
