General Notes:
Judy Morgan & Nickie Singleton will come up with a proposal for bylaws for our new (Oklahoma) AALL Chapter.

Judy Morgan volunteered to come up with a contest to name our nascent group. Both Nickie and Judy will consider whether we want to offer an institutional membership.

Nickie Singleton announced that Shelly Clements is doing well and is recovering from chemotherapy and will be back at work next week. The chapter membership took up a collection and Ann Long will send flowers to Shelly at work from the Oklahoma Chapter.
