Inside Vendors: David Seal asked if anyone had inside vendors. If so, please let him know.
Exhibitors: Due to insurance regulations that exhibitors must be IHC members, there was discussion concerning some exhibitors from last year that had static exhibits. As the Chapter wants to encourage everyone to become a member, David Seal suggested that the Chapter could give the exhibitors, who were sent a letter about the insurance rules, a waiver this year and the Chapter would pay the National Dues for this year only so they could participate in our Show. We hope they will renew their membership and also become a Chapter Member. A motion was made by Tyrone Scott to accept this suggestion. It was seconded by Roger Baker. The motion was approved.
SetUp: The setup will be the same as last year.
