January 25th BOD Meeting Agenda

 In addition to the BOD Meeting Agenda, a “Board Meeting Packet” is now being made available to SOA members via the mysomersett.com website. These packets contain detailed information behind the agenda items, which is good because the agenda document itself does not provide sufficient descriptions as to what the agenda items are all about.  The January 25th Board Meeting Packet may be accessed by logging on to your http://www.mysomersett.com account (If you do not have one, you are urged to sign up) and clicking on the “SOA/Committees & Meetings” link.

Background information on some the January 25th agenda items are as follows:
