Schmooze has been charging our account about $28 per month for their services, plus a start up fee of $195. A representative from Schmooze was supposed to be here today, but he has not shown up (over an hour late at that point). Less expensive alternatives were discussed and it was decided that Jacque George will write a 60 day termination letter to Schmooze; Deb Doubrava will gather information on setting up an account with Pay Pal. This will enable us to have people pay by credit card online. Statements will be included on the annual conference brochure that 1) if a person wishes to pay by credit card they should visit our website 2) credit card payments will not be accepted for on site registra-
