    I will be attending the Round Table Coordinating Assembly Standardization Task Force (RTCA STF) on the 7th. I've attached my summary of the documents I have reviewed. I plan to be in attendance at the next GameRT Board Meeting if anyone has questions.

    I have attached a summary of the meeting today. If you read my previous report, I was mistaken about the categories of dues being discussed. There is more than a single rate being considered. Today the discussion was about Regular Member dues and Student Member dues.
