FenCon Convention in Dallas this past weekend saw the distribution of the first literature ever prepared by SASS, a tri-fold brochure.
There was an informal meeting of some SASSians Sunday for lunch in the FenCon hotel restaurant. Treasurer Shedrick Pittman-Hassett lives in the Dallas Metroplex, Secretary Lou Antonelli lives in East Texas, and Michael Finn - who is the moderator of the Inkwell forum - lives in Houston. There were also two prospective members who joined the other for lunch.
The latest - and hopefully - final draft of the by-laws were distributed. The latest revision incorporate language needed because of being incorporated as a non-profit organization in the State of Texas. This version will be mailed to the 24 members of the by-laws study committee.
The secretary noted other changes included setting a minimum of ten dues paying members to formally call the first vote for adopting the by-laws, and the addition of a provision allowing a hardship waiver for dues.
A membership application is being prepared. The by-laws state that anyone who served on the by-laws study committee does not otherwise have to qualify for membership. The membership application will also be mailed to the members of the committee. It is anticipated that as many as half of the committee members may ultimately become dues-paying members.
