The Board decided that all content should be emailed to Rebecca to allow printing andassembly by next HERAA meeting in December. The Board discussed emailing an electroniccopy of the newsletter to Alumnae in the Database with email addresses. This would save onsnail mail costs on a large portion of the newsletter. Rebecca will look into the best financialoptions for printing and stapling the newsletter. The budget is typically $450 or so each year,but we are always looking for ways to reduce the price.Rebecca has received most articles from the E-board. Katie will again request any possiblearticles from the current HER women studying abroad. Marjorie will make some calls toadditional alumnae for possible contributions and will write something about some fellowalumnae (Elaine Panaretos (Bowditch)). The deadline will be to get all articles to Rebecca byNovember 22, 2003.Rebecca will email a copy of the Red Book questionnaire form to Marjorie to update for thisissue of the newsletter.Katie will confirm possible dates for the Alumnae Tea with the House. Suggested Dates areApril 10

Zomana sent out a posting on the Alumni Weekend HER Open House. The Email went outand there was a listing of events on the website. The open house went well for advertising theHouse to prospective house members as well as visiting alumnae.
