Handbook Section 1:  Eliminated names and e-mail addresses from “Division of Responsibilities” page to make updating easier.

                                    Updated “Past NMRT Officers” section to include all officers from 1994 to 2004.  (Possibly next year's committee night consider taking it back further than 1994)

                                    Updated Constitution and Bylaws per request from Governance Committee

                                    Added 2003-2004 Budget file to “NMRT Budget” page.  Was unable to obtain a .pdf version of 2004-2005.

Handbook Section 2:    Added the Word attachment “NMRT Board Guidelines for e-Meetings”

Handbook Section 4:    Updated the following committee entries:  SASCO, Student Reception, Web, SCOTYA, 3M/NMRT Social, 3M/NMRT Professional Development Grant, Liaison Coordination and Support, Footnotes, Exhibitor Contact and Relations, Governance, Orientation, Nominating, and Handbook.

Handbook Section 5:    Updated text per Liaison Coordination and Support Committee.

**Action Items/Issues To Be Resolved – What plans/projects remain which will be carried over or postponed until next year? Have there been any substantial changes in plans requiring a reconsideration or cancellation of projects? Information regarding such will be helpful for future chairs and planners.

All projected tasks have been completed.  However, some committee entries require continual updating and some have not been updated since last year (03-04) so they might need to be updated again.

Section 3 of the Handbook could also be reviewed to see if it needs updating.
