Called to order 7:00 pm

Old Business:
1. Committee Reports
a. Communications Committee (CJ)
Information for the next OWFI Report is due October 1st; if you have anything you wish to submit for the affiliate news, send it to me or post it on the OWFI website under the affiliate news section for Nevermore Edits.

b. Dark Arts Committee (JayCee)
Tomorrow, LibCon is at Hardesty Library from 11 am to 4 pm. Each of our publishers have our own tables there. JayCee has sent everyone seating arrangements. We also have a panel from 12 to 12:45 on independent publishing that will feature Shannon, Donna, and Mac.
If you need more details, all of these events are on Trello!
Tulsa POP is October 14th and 15th; we've already paid.
We haven't heard back on the Holiday Punk Rock Flea Market on December 3rd, but are hopeful.
We have scheduled Saturday, November 25th and Saturday, December 16th, to sell and sign books at Gardner's. We haven't given them a list of authors who will for sure be there yet, so consider it. We may be able to get December 23rd at Decopolis, and are still going to speak to 1907.

c. Fundraising Committee (Z, Katy)
If you have any fundraising ideas, you can send it to Z and/or Katy.

d. Newsletter Committee (Shannon)
The next deadline is October 6th; look ahead to that, and send articles to The Editor of the Season is JayCee; Donna will write the article.

e. Outreach Committee (Adrean)
Our first supply gathering for our adopted classroom has gone well! We have extra Kleenex, paper, and packaged almonds for the next one. Our first basket is prepared and ready for delivery!
College ruled paper, dry erase markers, tissues, pencils, are all on the regular supply list. We've also been told that our adopted teacher enjoys popcorn, nuts, and kettle cooked chips.

f. OWFI Committee (Shannon)
The next Slack chat will be with Ben Montgomery on October 12th. The topic is, "Sounding the Gong: How to Craft an Ending That Reverbrates." Attendance will cost $14, payable through the website. Proceeds for this will go to the conference; the transcript will be sent to attendees after the event, and available to all members in January.
Reminder that OWFI 2018's theme for our costumes and baskets is superheroes! If you get supplies for the basket, be sure to bring them to Lord Mistress of the Baskets, Z!
Another reminder that OWFI collects its dues in October, and it's cheaper to join as an affiliate than a member-at-large! The dues have increased by $5.
Contest start date is the same as last year: it opens January 1st and closes February 1st. The categories have changed, but they've been updated on the website.

New Business:
1. Officer Term Limits and Stuff (Adrean & Shannon)
It has been suggested to apply officer term limits and documentation as things we adopt as a group. We have amended the by-laws to limit each officer to two terms per position.

Pieces for Discussion
7:53 Queen's Rogues, Issue Two by Eris
8:47 RPG Video Game Outline by Kaz

Clean Up/Adjournment 9:44 pm

Until next time, friends. Be safe!
