Held at the Four Points by Sheraton
Meeting Called to Order by President Gwen Ivey.
Because we did not have a quorum, which is 10% of the membership, the meeting was suspended for all official union business.
A 3 hour information session followed.
President Ivey was thankful for all the support received.
We are pleased and grateful that more than three dozen members attended.
