Membership (Mike Sullivan)
Mike reported that we had at least 50 new IJA members sign up at the festival, which is common at a festival. Will and Rhonda Murray have been working with Mike to learn their new position. Mike will continue to assist in the transition for the next few months.

5. CONTINUING BUSINESS
5a. The BOD is concerned about finding a festival director for Lexington, KY. John Satriano and Sandy Brown decline to chair the festival again next year.

5b. The board is going to open up discussion on the forum regarding making the forum for IJA members only. The board will then evaluate the feedback from members and discuss this topic further at the next board meeting.
