Re: Nominations for the AMSAT Board of Directors - REPLY -



Bob puts this in good perspective.  I have just finished compiling an annual
donor listing for an upcoming journal and it brought me to two conclusions.
1) Compared to any organization of our size we are doing a phenomenal job of
garnering support over and above dues and 2) $4 million is a lot of money.
I know from discussions with many of the board (and potential board) members
that any idea for coming up with the bucks, no matter how far fetched, is
seriously addressed and persued.   So keep them coming.

Mal, NP2L
