Meeting with Director: The President of CREA met with the Director of CRS. They discussed new positions, and why CRS- unlike the rest of the LOC- did not get a funding increase in the appropriations act. The Director will start having office hours again.

 Grievance on lack of notification: This has been resolved.

KSG Forum: It is scheduled for January 27th. With all the changes we need to encourage people to attend the meeting.

Take our Children to Work Day: The organizers asked for a $200 donation. We had already budgeted for this.

CREA Alumni: There are certain people who have retired but still donate to CREA. Former President and retiree Jack Moteff is going to work on an idea for what we should do for such people.
