The official registration for the eighty-second Annual Meeting, held in Lincoln 20-22 May 1983, was 55. There was the usual slide show and get-together on Friday night, field trips Saturday morning (with demonstrations of bird banding), Saturday afternoon after the meeting, and Sunday morning. The practice of having talks was revived: Mark A. Brogie, Wayne, gave an illustrated talk on "Distribution of Birds of the Niobrara" and James Ducey, Omaha, did the same for "Breeding Status of the Interior Least Tern in Nebraska" before the business meeting. All officers were re-elected: Mrs. Ruth C. Green, Bellevue, President; Gary Lingle, Grand Island, Vice-president; Mrs. Emma Johnson, Omaha, Secretary; Mrs. Lona Shafer, Wood River, Treasurer; Dr. Neva Pruess, Lincoln, Librarian; and Dr. KG. Cortelyou, Omaha, Editor. It was also decided that the existing scale of dues should be carried forward for another year, with the help of the increased number of members. The 4-H camp at Halsey was selected for the Fall Field Day. At the banquet Gary Lingle, Grand Island, talked on "The Platte - Nebraska's River of Life", with slides and movie. The invitation of Doris Gates to hold the 1984 Annual Meeting in Chadron was accepted with pleasure.
