Public Relations

Not present, but kudos to Daniel for editing the "Electrobau" footage together and making an excellent video out of it.


Scott is behind on giving the Treasurer the info on Velleman. We will not be purchasing again; it is a money-loser.

He offers to place prepaid orders for members.

He is looking into local sponsorships, but it is slow.
