Membership: 

The meeting was held today to review the interview with Dylan Davis of AmeriDri Restoration. Gentry Copelin and Heather Smith both feel that he will be a great addition to the group.

The motion was seconded by Heather Smith and all voting members present approved. 

The absence of conflict was verified, and Dylan Davis is now a member. Heather Smith to reach out to him and his sponsor to share the news.
