          • Council discussed lifetime, tabled for time being, but are looking into multi-year memberships, one option including a discount or special offer (ie: Chad has contacted Overland Journal to see if they would include their magazin with a 2 or 3 year membership. Attendees seem to like the idea of multi-year.[/*:m]
          • Bob needs to check on our membership software to see if it will handle multi-year.[/*:m][/list:u][/*:m][/list:u]
