Dear GCA and Friends:
Our meetings in Farmington this past weekend were well-attended and successful. Wish you all had been there! A special shout out to Deanna Rothlisberger, Tonya Stinson, and Ingrid Gilbert for the great job they did of keeping us organized, well-fed, and happy! The level of organization was outstanding! Thanks to the Farmington Convention and Visitors Bureau.
The Board made two suggested changes to the GCA Bylaws, which are attached (Bylaws and proposed changes). These changes were ratified by the board in Farmington and will be on the agenda to be ratified by the membership at the December membership meeting in Moab.
