Stephanie will be sending out notice to the association regarding the open positions and letters if intent. At this time no letters of intent have been received.
Discussed whether or not we want to conduct the raffle again as a fundraiser to pay for Lobbyist fees and if so, do we want to be ready to start selling tickets by the conference in October.
We also discussed if we need to cap the cash option to the actual value of the firearm that is being raffled as many people were taking the gift card option. It was suggested that we wait to see what happens with the remaining drawings and start moving forward on this at the next board meeting.
