Unical’s generosity for permitting us to use one of their working hangers for the Inland Action Anniversary event was acknowledged. They did not charge Inland Action to use this as the party venue and much work went into preparing the space for us. In appreciation and as they are a prior member of Inland Action it was suggested that they be offered a one-year complimentary membership. If accepted, they would not have voting privileges or be eligible for advocacy trip reimbursements. Discussion ensued.
Motion T. Rice/Second/Passed: Unical will be invited to join Inland Action for a one-year complimentary membership.

In appreciation of the volunteers that drove the electric carts and greeted attendees at the 60th Anniversary event Inland Action will give the University of Redlands First Generation group $500.00
