a. Jeff Schatz is chair of the Executive Board and will report on:

10. Membership Application Form
a. Attached is a membership application form I worked up and am requesting your approval for use. All that has ever been used in the past for membership is the dues form. We have had numerous issues with schools applying for membership in order to coop with another school. After the coops have been approved some schools have taken issue with being charged participation fees for the coop'd activity because they don't have any students participating. I believe this will meet the requirement in Article III, Section II of the Constitution.
