Business Meeting
October 29, 2004

The business meeting was called to order by the 2004 President, John I. Brooks, III around 1:15 p.m. on October 29, 2004.

Minutes from the 2003 meeting were read by the president for the Secretary/Treasurer, Greg Rich. P. Eddy Wilson made a motion to accept the minutes as read. Jim McLachlan seconded the motion. The motion carried unanimously.

The president elected to forgo a formal address. He suggested that the round-table conversations on papers and the professional life of religious scholars was a fitting substitute.

The editor of the on-line journal announced that Volume IV of the journal was now available. A call for papers will be forthcoming. Currently the journal serves as an archive of proceedings of the annual meetings. A suggestion was made that the journal could be recorded with the Library of Congress, and the editor duly noted that as a possibility for future development.

Greg Rich has served as Secretary-Treasurer. The NCRSA thanks him for his work for the past years. John Brooks said that he is considering taking the job, since the treasury account with BB&T is currently at Fayetteville, NC.

The president noted that the program chair does not have to be at the host site. Diane Walsh Pasulka expressed an interest in becoming the program chair for 2004. The president made a motion that Diane Walsh Pasulka be the next Vice President, and Jim McLachlan seconded it. The motion carried unanimously.

Members of the faculty from Wingate University, Robert Prevost and Ed Bagley, offered their university as host to the 2005 meeting. Other possible hosts would be Appalachian State University, Fayetteville State University, or Barton College. Alan Hauser moved that the site for 2005 be Wingate University. Jim McLachlan second the motion. The motion carried unanimously.

P. Eddy Wilson suggested that the organization had traditionally sent out a letter of recognition to the host institution and its administrators. Robert Prevost made a formal motion that the letter be sent by the Secretary-Treasurer on behalf of the organization. Wilburforce Mundia seconded the motion. The motion carried unanimously.

With lunch served and no other business to conduct at this time the president moved that the meeting be adjourned. Jim McLachlan seconded the motion. The motion carried unanimously.

The meeting adjourned about 1:40 PM

Respectfully Submitted,

P. Eddy Wilson
