The group will begin their investigations in February after the Winter Board Meeting. Per Collins, the advertisement for the Proceedings Editor position will go out before the Winter Board meeting. Hanson announced that NASIG now accepts American Express credit cards. 4.0 Committee Updates (All) Kaplan and MDC will review older conference surveys to see if those surveys contain enough information as to why people chose to stop attending NASIG conferences. If more information is needed, MDC will send out a poll to see why people chose not to attend the NASIG conference in DC. A bigger picture issue is that one person needs to coordinate NASIG advertising and how often surveys are conducted. ACTON ITEM: Borchert will contact the NASIG Publicist to see if the announcement regarding free student memberships will be going out soon. Kaplan will take the investigations of the petition process done by the Board sub-group to the Bylaws Committee now that the sub-group has made their recommendations. Per Kelley, CPC has a conference call scheduled where they will be picking items for the Cafe Press store. CPC will make sure that Cafe Press has the new NASIG logo. Also, Leigh Ann DePope, NASIG Publicist, will speak to the company that has the video of the vision speakers so that CPC can try to get the video online. The NASIG Archives can only handle paper materials, so the disc does not meet the requirements of being archived. ACTION ITEM: CPC will add to their manual instructions for uploading the vision speaker videos to the NASIG website right after the annual conference. (Kelley) The online NASIG membership registration form currently only allows for individuals to join as regular members. ACTION ITEM: Burris will work with CMC to add in the additional categories of membership onto the online NASIG membership registration form (e.g. student membership, etc.). Per Burris, Beth Ashmore announced that the SERIALST listserv now accepts attachments as Word documents. The official announcement will go out on the listserv in January. 7.0 Adjourn (Borchert) The meeting adjourned at 4:06 pm.
