slight overall gain during the last 30 days with the net
result that the Chapter currently has a total of
$18,960.05 in its Merrell Lynch account.
Endowments: Michael Brice has sent out letters to
colleges to encourage application to the Chapter for its
annual scholarship. The Texas Parks and Wildlife
Department's Golden Algae Team donated $1500.00
to the Chapter for its scholarship fund. We wish to
thank all members of the team for their generous
Continuing Education: Bruce Hysmith and Spencer
Dumont have come up with two topics for the
Continuing Education at the annual meeting. There is
also a possibility of a tour of the National Marine
Fisheries Service's Sea Turtle Project.
Nominating: John Moczygemba has worked hard to
develop a qualified slate of officers for this year's ballot.
Secretary/Treasurer candidates are Joan Glass and
Paula Hawkins and for President Elect the candidates
are Fran Gelwick and Deborah Wade.
Pond Management: Craig Bonds is looking at ways that
TCAFS might be of service at the Bass 101 workshop
in the San Marcos area to be held March 28-29, 2003.
Awards: Bart Durham has obtained the files from
Danny. He requested that the Chapter consider
amending the bylaws so that Special Recognition
Awards could be presented at anytime during the year
should a special need arise. He mentioned Dr.
Dalquest who pasted away between being nominated
and the actual meeting where the award was presented
as an example. He is to make a presentation at the
business meeting on this topic. He also requested that
the Chapter consider adding a publication award. The
ExCom agreed the idea had merit and requested that he
research the proposal more thoroughly so that we could
discuss it at the next ExCom meeting.
Student Chapter: Members of the Chapter have
obtained an autographed basketball from Bobby
Knight, which is to be auctioned at the Banquet with
funds going to the Student Chapter.
Membership: Kevin Pope requested that the Chapter
revise the method in which it is currently tracking its
membership. By allowing the Parent Society to keep
the membership roll there will be a continuous database
available for both newsletter and anyone else that needs
the list. It will eliminate duplication of effort on the part
of the Chapter and the Parent Organization and it will
cost $2.50 per non Parent Society member. Kevin was
asked to present the pros and cons of the issue to the
membership at the next business meeting.
Publicity/Exhibits: David DeLeon and Brian Van Zee
reported that they have five confirmed exhibitors for the
meeting as well as several excellent donations in the
works. They believe that they have obtained
sponsorship for the kegs at the mixer and banquet.
Editorial: Tim Bonner has abstracts for thirty-three oral
presentations and eleven posters at the moment he
hoping to receive three or four more oral presentations
before the deadline. There are currently fifteen
speakers in the special symposium on Marine Fisheries.
Dick Luebke has agreed to be the Texas Chapter
representative for the American Fisheries Society
Leadership Committee pending the approval of the
TCAFS ExCom. The ExCom was in agreement that
Dick was an excellent choice.
