President Richard Hall called the meeting to order at 1:50 PM in Salon A of the Barnhardt Student Activities Center at the University of North Carolina -- Charlotte. 

The minutes of the October 25, 2002, meeting were distributed and approved. The Secretary-Treasurer also distributed a dues notice for 2003-2004 and a Treasurer's report, showing a balance of $624.89. The report was accepted. 

John Collins moved that the association return to Charlotte as often as invited. John Brooks seconded , and the motion was approved.. In the event that the association would not be meeting in Charlotte next year, Jim McLachlan invited the association to Western Carolina University for next year's meeting. The invitation was accepted, on the assumption that the meeting would not be in Charlotte again next year. 

Jim McLachlan was then elected Vice President / Program Chair and Local Arrangements Chair for next year's meeting, and Greg Rich was re-elected Secretary-Treasurer for one more year. In accordance with the association's constitution, John Brooks will become President for next year. 

John Collins moved that Fayetteville State University host the web site for the association's on-line journal, THINKING ABOUT RELIGION, and that P. Eddy Wilson become Editor of the journal. Joe Frank Jones seconded, and the motion was approved. The understanding was that John Brooks would manage the web site at Fayetteville State. Journal Editor P. Eddy Wilson encouraged presenters and reviewers to complete their work in a timely manner.
