Hector Cantu was selected Chair, and Milburn Taylor was selected Vice-Chair. We still need to fill our Treasurer position, so let Hector know if you are interested.
Here are the main “mission” points we discussed:

+ Preserving the history and contributions of Texas cartoonists
+ Exploring professional opportunities
We’ve penciled in our next meeting for March in Dallas. Details to come.
If you have any NCS member candidates, please send an email to email@example.com.
Congrats, everyone! We look forward to working toward our goals, seeing you in Dallas, and having fun!
