    Rebekkah discussed the resolution the New York Library Association (NYLA) has passed as a possible model for ALA to consider. Will speak to Peter about moving it forward. She also spoke about the efforts to make the NYLA conference greener, by offering attendees an option to bring their own badge holder and to pass on the free bag, brochure and other paper. These were made available electronically.

    Matt will bring a projector to annual for the presentation along with a laptop.

    Betsy gave a fiscal year financial report. Some questions were raised and she will get those answers.

    Ways to change the conference consumption may be to coordinate with the Exhibitors Roundtable.

    An online open meeting is scheduled for February 2015 to help collection items for this project.
