Secretary and Treasurer's Report

Ruth Favro, Treasurer I would like to take this opportunity to thank everyone who sent in dues! Each check is appreciated. The current balance in the Section account is $11,819.88, which includes a $3000 grant from the Exxon Foundation to sponsor Section Project NExT activities. Last year, the balance was $9,199.39.

We now have 150 individual members; last year at this time we had 144. A breakdown of membership is shown in the table below. Lists of sustaining and institutional members are given on pages 31 and 33, respectively.

  March 2000 March 1999 March 1998
regular members 97 100 123
sustaining members 53 44 48
institutional members 27 27 21

This year's individual members include 106 from higher education, eight from K-12 education, four from industry, 23 retired, four students, and five others. Of the 26 institutions, 11 are private, 11 are state-supported, and five are two-year.

If you have not sent in your dues for 1999-2000, you can still do so. There is a membership form on page 33 of the printed newsletter. If you can't remember whether you have paid, contact me by e-mail ( or phone (248-204-3531), and I will be glad to let you know.

The book sale at the Section's annual meeting promises to be at least as good as last year. All new publications will be on hand. From what I saw in Washington, they are excellent! The book sale is a good place to stock up on books to give graduating seniors, prize books for contests, and books for your own library.

Ruth Favro, Secretary/Treasurer
