    a. Tax-exempt Status: The President reported that the IRS had made two comments in a letter concerning the association's tax-exempt application.

He noted that this information would be furnished to the IRS.

    b. Annual Meeting Raffle Procedure: In reviewing check-in procedures, the Vice President noted that only MMA members should be issued raffle tickets at the annual membership meeting.

5. New Business:

    a. USAMU Report: None.

    b. Reunion Planning: The Vice President questioned what planning needed to be done for the 48th Reunion. Individual board members recalled what areas of responsibility USAMU and MMA had assumed or shared in the past reunions. The Secretary noted that he had posted a date countdown and some preliminary information on the MA web site. He said that he would furnish at the next meeting the previous information packet sent to each MMA member for the 46th reunion. It was also noted the USAMU had a Hall of Fame/Reunion After Action Report. Mr. Berry remarked that reunion information and a schedule of events were published in the MMA Times. The President suggested that reunion planning be placed on the April meeting agenda and each successive monthly meeting.

    c. Member Donation Inquiry: The Secretary stated that an e-mail message was forwarded to him from a member wishing to donate a rifle to the association.

The President recommended that the Secretary respond stating that any donation would be the property of the association and would be used or disposed of as the association sees fit.
