The secretary’s report was given by Doretta York
Doretta started a discussion about the NCM Alumni Council who were to represent our alumni group at Husson in their mission to set up a school of music on the Husson Campus. So far Husson has not had any meetings for our people to attend. In fact, in spite of a few attempts on Arnie’s part to contact Bill Beardsley and the Husson group, there been no response from them.
We again discussed web space and purchasing a domain name. Arnie did a quick search and has found out that through GoDaddy.com we can purchase a domain name for $6.96 a year. For Economy web space the price is only $3.59/mo for 5 GB of space and no advertising. Arnie will further research and email list. It was discussed that maybe Husson would give us space in the future.
NOTE: Since the meeting there has been considerable conversation on the NCM List-serve discussing photos and web space that Ralph and Liz Vose put up. It is my understanding that Ralph would let us host our web pages there with FTP access for those in the group that would manage that space. That means that we could get by with just purchasing the domain name.
As with all other years we talked about where people are now and some very funny stories about those days so long ago.
