      On Jan. 19, 2005 about 25-30 CIRPCA members & friends met at El Sol
      in downtown Indianapolis.

      Elisabeth welcomed everyone and asked the PC Nominees to introduce
      themselves: Nancy, Amy and Zach have all been nominated to leave
      this year to Azerbaijan and Dominican Republic; visitors Ericka and
      Brent are interested in joining PC. The most recently returned
      volunteer was John from Vanuatu, who had returned just 10 days prior.

      CIRPCA members who shared their PC experiences in the "Volunteer
      Spotlight" were Wayne Prophet who served in St. Vincent, 68 - 70,
      Dave Siemantel who served in Swaziland 86-89, as well as Sara Pugh
      who served in Lesotho 01-03.

      Names were collected for those who are members of NPCA. If anyone is
      a member and has not told a board member, then please email
      elisabeth274@... and let her know as soon as possible –
      thank
      you!

      Rich updated everyone on the status of the bank account. Basically,
      we are waiting to get an incorporation letter from the state that
      will officially grant us association. He also sold the RPCV Madison
      calendars; there are some calendars remaining, so let Rich know if
      you would like to purchase any.

      Colleen encouraged RPCV's to participate in World Wise Schools and
      speak to a classroom. Peace Corps Week is the first week in March.
      If you are interested in participating, go to
      http://www.peacecorps.gov/index.cfm?shell=resources.former.pcweek to
      register to participate and get materials sent to you. Please
      contact her if you need assistance in locating a school to speak at
      turnerc@...
