9:00AM Interim Chair Buchman begins pre-meeting by apologizing to west coast members for starting at “6AM your time.” Had intended to start a bit later to accommodate those from Pacific Time zones.
Buchman then thanked Mr. Sarr for his role as chair of the Audit Committee and offered a “public apology” for resigning from that committee last fall. Several of those present expressed similar thanks to the audit committee and its chair for its work.
Buchman then thanked Mr. Goldstein for hosting tonight’s BBQ “the tipping point for bringing us to Indianapolis” and presented a gift of a bottle of pre-mixed mint julep for consumption during tonight’s 140th Run for the Roses (Kentucky Derby).
Buchman then apologized for accepting an invitation to be on a panel at another conference, in Chicago, on Sunday at noon, explained how he felt it was consistent with a broader “work for liberty,” and proceeded to the election of the 2014 Libertarian Platform Committee chair.
Ms. Mattson was the sole individual indicating a willingness and availability to serve, and was elected unanimously.
Mr. Starr was then likewise elected secretary.
