Elisabeth Piotelat, volunteer Regional Coordinator for France, emailed her annual report, which was read into the record by executive director H. Paul Shuch.
Report by SETI League president and station trustee Richard Factor. The EME beacon remains off the air following Mr. Factor's relocation to Arizona. He states that relocation of the beacon station to his new residence is impractical. Thus, future EME activities are suspended indefinitely. However, his new location is an ideal site for Optical SETI observations, he has nearby neighbors with optical observatories, and he contemplates OSETI activities from his residence in the future.
Member Bill Kitchen reports on his new Celestron 13" optical telescope, which he believes will be useful for Optical SETI activities, and opines that Sedona AZ will be an ideal location from which to observe.
Awards Committee chairman David Ocame being absent, report provided by Dr. Shuch. There were no Giordano Bruno Awards or Orville N. Greene Awards presented for contributions during 2016, due to a lack of nominations. Nominations during 2017 will be solicited. Twelve websites have been given the SETI SuperStar award this year. More nominations are requested from the members. Paul will note this in the next issue of SearchLites.
The Annual Membership Meeting was adjourned by the Executive Director Emeritus at 14:24 hours EDT on 23 April 2017. A Regular Board of Trustees meeting followed a brief recess.
