NMCASE Meeting:
From the Desk of the NMCASE President, Theresa Griffin-Golden:  The NMCASE Board of Directors is proposing to update the NMCASE By-laws at the January 13, 2015 NMCASE Membership meeting.  A majority vote of the NMCASE active members (this does not include Friends of NMCASE members, although we welcome their attendance) is necessary to consider amendment of the NMCASE By-laws.   The purpose of proposed amendments is to bring alignment to our current practices.  We welcome your input and hope that you are able to attend.
