Several announcements were made:
-- The group is considering and investigating an Eastern European conference that could serve as a springboard for researchers to travel to ancestral towns after the event.
-- A review is being made of the IAJGS Mission Statement. A hefty packet was provided with information on the deliberations of the committee involving the statement, membership expansion and benefits and services for members.
-- Elections were held. Members of the board of directors, elected for a two-year term, are Jan Meisels Allen, Nolan Altman, Daniel Horowitz, Khalil Mehr, Jay Sage and Jackye Sullins. Directors are elected in even years, officers in odd years.
More information will be available on the IAJGS website.
