In the evening of August 18, we held a Center for the Study of Economics Board meeting, which was not strictly speaking part of the Georgist Conference, but with a number of CSE Board members present, it was a convenient time and place for a meeting. Alodia Arnold proposed a BIL talk (an informal alternative to a TED talk) in Fairhope, Alabama, on October 22, 2016. I'm not sure what came of that.

Then there was a Henry George Institute membership meeting; again, this wasn't formally a part of the conference as such. Our program director reported that we have many enrollments, but few people following through and completing the course. Some people (mostly prisoners) still complete the basic course by mail (rather than over the Internet), and two are to receive transcripts from Excelsior College.

Can we get more people by advertising?

The Robert Schalkenbach Foundation is now helping to support publication of the Georgist Journal, at $5000 per year.

We need money, and some day, we will need a successor to Lindy Davies, our Program Director. I'm president, but I have a full time job elsewhere.
