The December meeting was held by conference call and was called to order by President Sarah Kleinschmidt. The minutes and financials were approved by Consent Agenda. Expo details were reviewed. James will introduce Past Presidents at the Wednesday luncheon. Seating will be assigned by adding the name of a tree to nametags to create connexity. Celebrity names will be assigned with first name to attendees and last name to vendors as a mixer at the cocktail reception. Breakfast of Champions topics were discussed. James emailed a draft schedule to the Board to review for Expo Staffing. 67 Booth spaces have been rented. We are pleased to have received $4,248 in sponsorships. Shane is working with the FFA advisor to get volunteers to help with vendor move-in. MSU Extension has emailed the Free Seminars flyer to their Master Gardener List. We will have a Job Posting Board at Expo. Three students are registered for the CPP Exam. Donna Rise sent Jennifer nursery law updates to add to the CPP manuals.

SBGA will provide a credit card reader to add to a tablet for credit card purchases at Expo. The Vendor meeting time will be moved to 1:00 pm on Wednesday so as not to interfere with the Keynote Speaker address. The annual meeting information will be included in the registration packets so members have time to review the information prior to the Thursday luncheon meeting. We will offer Q & A time at the meeting for member questions.
