          The RLC National Board met in teleconference last night
      and took several actions.
       
          John Reed's resignation as Vice Chairman was accepted
      with regrets and appreciation for his long service and efforts
      in support of RLC State Chapter development and activities
      of the Texas RLC. We wish him well in his continued efforts
      on behalf of the Texas organization.
          In the absence of any Board member interested in the
      position, we will be soliciting the general membership for
      a candidate to serve as Acting Vice Chairman until the
      Bylaws qualifications are met.
          The Board also approved formal notice to Alan Turin
      that he will be removed from the office of Treasurer in the
      absence of his resignation. A replacement will be selected
      from among candidates at the March 9th meeting of the
      Board.
       
          The Chairman reported on the fundraising efforts of
      Lonnie Brantley, current RLC accounts, and a pending
      solicitation to the Reason Foundation contributors.
       
          The Board formally approved the application of the
      New Hampshire RLC for an official state Charter, offered
      commendations to Rep. David Shafer for his efforts in
      the development of a Georgia legislative Liberty Caucus
      and decided that a state competition for membership
      growth will not have a fixed reward. The state with the
      largest percentage growth during the coming year will
      be "given preference" to host the 2006 RLC National
