the fall meeting, members in attendance voted to change the criteria of the
Chapter Professional Development award. Instead of opening the award to all
members it was suggested that the award be used to underwrite funding for an
officer attending the national conference. It was later apparent from discussion
on the listserv that the change was not popular with a number of members, in
particular several individuals who had not been able to attend the meeting. It
was decided to put the issue to a vote by the entire membership, and this time
the vote was in favor of leaving the terms of the award as it was.
