1) Fall 2017 NCGS Meeting
Current plan is to hold the meeting Friday, 7 November on or near the WSSU campus. There will be a business meeting in the morning and presentations in the afternoon with a focus on North Carolina content. Price with be set for members based on cost and nonmembers will pay cost + membership. There will be an opportunity for posters as well. Final details and advertising should be in place by late August or early September.

2) Publications
We will reach out to specific individuals regarding positions on the editorial board then open the call broadly. Hope to have the primary editor for the North Carolina Geographer on board by the fall meeting so that a call for papers can go out soon.

3) Website and advertising
Website is ready for access, though more content is planned for the fall. Advertising for the society and the fall meeting will begin as soon as details are finalized for the fall NCGS meeting. We will reach out to other NC groups to advertise to their membership.

Elections will be deferred until 2018 unless there is significant interest by the membership to hold elections sooner.
