The 1995 annual spring meeting and field trips will be held at Camp Calvin Crest near Fremont, NE May 19-21. Most of the Executive Committee members agreed that presentation of one scientific paper on Saturday afternoon would be a desirable addition. The 1995 annual fall meeting will be at Halsey National Forest 4-H camp, tentatively on October 6-8. The Executive Committee decided against having a winter meeting.

Alice Kenitz discussed the printing of the Nebraska Ornithologists' Union (NOU) Field Card of Nebraska Birds. She reported that there may be some money available from the Nebraska Game and Parks Commission to help with the printing costs. Wayne Mohlhoff said that Ross Lock, at the Commission headquarters in Lincoln, told him that non-game funds should be available to print the cards. Neal Ratzlaff will investigate the procedure. Wayne found that the University of Nebraska Press is not interested in publishing the Breeding Bird Atlas, which is 450 pages in length.

Neal discussed the need to have a member of the Records Committee on the Publications committee. He has appointed Duane Bright and Jim Kovanda to serve on the Audit Committee and to help Betty Grenon with finances. A yearly audit is required by the Bylaws.

Archived records of NOU are stored at the Nebraska State Museum on the University of Nebraska campus in Lincoln.
