  1. FHISO’s legal status. Drew has an engagement letter from Carter Law Group that he will send out. Advance deposit of $1,000 required. We will need to prepare a list for each year of Officers and when they served and stopped serving. Andy thinks he already has most of that put together. We can appoint them as our Statutory Agent for $100 per year. $300 per year if we use them as our mailing address. For the statutory agent we have to provide them needed information in a timely manner.
  2. Citation Elements Vocabulary. Richard has done the most recent work on the Citation Elements project that is on Github and gave an outline of remaining work that needs to be done.
  3. Administration. Discussion about continuing to use the PO Box in Arizona, and sharing the cost of the PO Box with Robert Burkhead. Our share of that is $61.20 per 6 months.
  4. RootsTech 2017: Luther, Tony, Drew and Roger will be there. We will plan a dinner for a night that suits everyone.

Next meeting to be 16 March 2017.
