President Nick Morgan called the meeting to order at 7pm. 

Treasurer Caitlin Gulihur gave the Treasurer's Report. She urged members to renew and newcomers to join using online payment for speed and convenience. Pat Mercado-Allinger moved to accept the report. Peter seconded. 

Nick gave an update on the Texas Archeological Society Annual Meeting that TCAS will host in October in San Marco. He stated that the first call for papers has gone out, and registration is available online. The hotel block is filling up, with 44 of 120 rooms already sold. The meeting has received a $2,000 grant from the San Marcos Visitor Center. It was used to purchase totes and lanyards at excellent prices. Pat asked if hotel rooms in the block can be increased depending on demand, not just reduced. Nick promised to look into it.

Elliot Richmond introduced the speaker, Texas Department of Transportation Archeologist Waldo Troell, who gave a presentation entitled, "Update on the Analysis of the A.S. Mann Site (41AN201), a Late Caddo Village in the Upper Neches River Valley, Anderson County".
