Minutes of the Annual Meeting
July 10, 2004
Boston, Massachusetts

I. Introduction
The 2004 annual meeting of Innovative Law Users Group members was held at the Marriott Copley Hotel in Boston, Massachusetts. Elizabeth Moore, ILUG Chair, called the meeting to order, thanked III for its support of breakfast and the breaks, introduced new members, current officers, and III staff members present, and welcomed all in attendance at the meeting.

II. Minutes
A motion was made, seconded, and members voted to approve the Minutes of the 2003 meeting. These minutes were included among the materials handed out at the meeting.

III. Chair's Report
Elizabeth introduced the ILUG officers and Innovative personnel present, and gave a brief outline of the day's agenda. The question of the possibility of email ballots was raised again, as it had been in the 2003 meeting. Elizabeth suggested that if any members were interested in working on the logistics of the ILUG doing this, they should contact Joseph Hinger, the incoming Chair.

IV. Treasurer's Report
Phyllis Post gave the Treasurer's Report, and referred to the copy of the printed report which was included among the materials handed out at the meeting. (please see below for a typescript of this report.) She noted that the role of the Treasurer is principally to collect dues and to arrange for the annual meeting, including the lunch, to be paid for. The checking account is in the process of being changed to Bank One/Chase.

V. Officers
Elizabeth introduced the incoming Chair Joseph Hinger, (St. John's University Law Library), and passed to him the "Orange Envelope of Power." Joseph announced the election results. Thomas Baker (Arthur W. Diamond Law Library, Columbia Law School), was introduced as the incoming chair. Phyllis Post continues as Treasurer. Joseph thanked all the candidates for their willingness to run for office, passed the confetti envelope to Tom for the coming year, and presented outgoing Chair Elizabeth with a gift.

VI. New Business
Elizabeth called for any New Business. There being none, the annual business meeting was adjourned, and the Group moved on to the Annual Workshop Program.

VII. Annual Workshop Program

Attached please find the program for the day, also the Treasurer's Report. (I have retyped these into these minutes.)
