Other meeting highlights include keeping membership dues at $250 for the third year in a row, planning show dates through 2020, establishing committees including the Marketing Committee, and approving eight new members. The Marketing Committee is tasked with choosing a firm to partner with on developing a new name and branding for the new entity.
