II. Sonia Sabnis, Reed College, was elected president of CAPN by acclamation The 2015 meeting will be held at Reed.

III. Location for the 2016 meeting: there has been no news from Whitman. What about the University of Puget Sound? The board will check with Eric Orlin; likewise, it will consult Nick Smith at Lewis and Clark to see if Lewis and Clark would like host a future CAPN. It is good to expand the group of institutions participating.

IV. The treasurer’s report was circulated and approved. The CAPN Budget is in good shape.

The board voted to fund ACL at $150 and NCLG at $50. Mary will communicate with Andrew.
A reminder to everyone: please send in your CAPN registration fees.
The secretary-treasurer will clean up the membership list so that reflects members’ standing. Adding a date to the renewal sheet will help people recollect if they’ve paid.

Mary will take over as secretary-treasurer.
