The meeting today concerned the format of future meetings. Over the years the group has moved away from the formal style we started with to a far more casual and unstructured format. Dues have not been collected for years, introductions are rarely made, topics have been spotty at best.

I take responsibility for these issues and others, and am trying to rectify them now.
The CLUG Bylaws have been posted, please read them and be aware that in the future, they will be used to govern the direction and intent of the group.
