Zach, I wanted to thank you personally for all your efforts to putthis together. I know that every board member is grateful as wellsince it is one of our priorities to make chapters an important part ofthe IAS so we can increase our membership as well as helpmembers find others in their area with whom they can share theirinterest in aroids.

For those of you that don't know, Zach volunteered more than one yearago to accept responsibility for organizing the MidAmerica Chapter. Hehas communicated with Carla, Dr. Croat, Albert and myself on a veryregular basis treating this project as if it was a business. We hadcharts all away through the process and knew exactly where thepotential meeting stood months in advance. He sent many emails topossible attendees inviting them to participate as well as postednotices on almost every known plant discussion forum. Without Zach'sefforts the meeting is likely to have not been nearly as successful.

We encourage all our members to consider forming a chapter in your areaand will gladly offer assistance. For those of you not aware, there isinterest in North Florida, the Northeastern US, the UK and Australia informing a chapter so please post your interest here or send it to oneof the board members if you need help. Our membership is on an upwardsgrowth trend with a 20% increase in the past year and we want to keepit that way!

My thanks to all who attended the meeting in St. Louis but a specialthanks to Carla, Emily, Tom and all the MOBOT staff members that madean effort to make this meeting the success it was. I enjoyed meetingall of you! With Zach's guidance we will be starting work on the nextmeeting shortly and hope even more of you will plan to attend!

Thanks again Zach! Stellar job.
