The Legislative Committee recommendation is to retain Tom Bristow for this legislative session. The Board agreed, noting that the vast majority ofsurvey respondents (75 out of 81) do support paying for a lobbyist.
The Board will begin dues solicitation at the end of January 2000. This will include membership dues and a suggested donation to supportlegislative activities. The Legislative Committee will need to continue educating the membership on the importance of legislative activities and the need for monetary support. The Board will do anything it can to help support these efforts.
For the upcoming Legislative Day, the Board and the Legislative Committee
will ask the membership to write letters and arrange for meetings with
their legislators. It was agreed that people should go in pairs to
these meetings if at all possible.

so the election must be timed accordingly.
