MINUTES OF THE ANNUAL MEETING OF THE BOARD OF DIRECTORS OF THE HISTORICAL SOCIETY OF THE EPISCOPAL CHURCH 19 JUNE 2004

The annual meeting of the Board of Directors of the Historical Society of the Episcopal Church (HSEC) convened at 9:15 AM in the Concorde Room of the SpringHill Suites Chicago O'Hare, on Saturday, 19 June 2004. Officers and directors present were: Henry Warner Bowden, Mark J. Duffy, Frederick W. Gerbracht Jr., N. Brooks Graebner, Alexandra S. Gressitt, Pamela W. Darling, Alan L. Hayes, Eugene Y. Lowe Jr., Thomas A. Mason, J. Patrick Mauney, Alda Marsh Morgan, Alfred A. Moss Jr., Robert W. Prichard, Barbara Brandon Schnorrenberg, Bindy Snyder, Gregory S. Straub, Thad W. Tate, Fredrica Harris Thompsett, John F. Woolverton, and J. Robert Wright. A. Margaret Landis, editor of The Historiographer, and Willis H. A. Moore, Publications Committee chair and director of publications for the National Episcopal Historians and Archivists (NEHA), were also present. President Tate opened the meeting with a prayer from the New Zealand Prayer Book. The directors unanimously approved the minutes of the 2003 meeting of the Board of Directors.

REPORT OF THE NOMINATIONS AND CONSTITUTIONAL AMENDMENTS COMMITTEE (APPENDED)

Fredrica Harris Thompsett, chair of the Nominations and Constitutional Amendments Committee, nominated-for one-year terms as officers of the Society-Thad W. Tate for president, Alfred A. Moss Jr. for first vice president, Eugene Y. Lowe Jr. for second vice president, Frederick W. Gerbracht Jr. for treasurer, and Thomas A. Mason for secretary. The directors unanimously elected the slate of officers.

REPORT OF THE EPISCOPAL WOMEN'S HISTORY PROJECT (APPENDED)

Bindy Snyder, president of the Episcopal Women's History Project (EWHP), submitted a written report. EWHP is sponsoring panels ("Discovering Women in Your Church History" and "Women's History in the Diocese of Chicago") at the forthcoming Anglican-Lutheran Historical Conference titled "Anglicans and Lutherans: The New World Experience of Two Old World Traditions." EWHP is also sponsoring a dinner with J. Robert Wright speaking on "A Challenge to Women Historians." At its forthcoming Board of Directors meeting, EWHP expects to approve four proposals for research projects. EWHP will hold its 2005 annual meeting in Dallas and will participate in the triconference at Jamestown in 2007. Barbara Schnorrenberg reported that Julia Randle had to step down as cochair of the Anglican-Lutheran Historical Conference, and Barbara Schnorrenberg continued as sole program and planning chair of the conference. Fredrica Thompsett moved, and the directors approved by acclamation, thanks to Barbara Schnorrenberg for her leadership in organizing the conference.

REPORT OF THE NATIONAL EPISCOPAL HISTORIANS AND ARCHIVISTS (APPENDED)

Gregory Straub, president of the National Episcopal Historians and Archivists (NEHA), submitted a written report. NEHA had a booth in the exhibitors' area of the General Convention at Minneapolis. Julia Randle, Willis Moore, and Margaret Landis helped to stall the booth. NEHA participated in planning for the forthcoming Anglican-Lutheran Historical Conference and has launched a new Web site. Of NEHA's publications, the Episcocats Calendar sells the best; the historical church calendar has declining sales. NEHA membership is now at 218. Gregory Straub appealed to HSEC members to submit articles for publication in The Historiographer, the joint HSEC-NEHA newsletter. He noted that the HSEC's financial contribution to The Historiographer is not commensurate with the number of copies going to HSEC members. Circulation is about 60 percent to HSEC members and 40 per net to NEHA members. Of the $8,415 expense, $3,900 was borne by the HSEC ($1,300 per issue), and $4,515 by NEHA. Frederick Gerbracht proposed that the HSEC should commit to paying 50 percent of the costs of the newsletter. Willis Moore noted that NEHA is exploring the possibility of electronic publication for The Historiographer and proposed that the budget process be improved by budgeting a set production cost, and regularizing the number of pages, per issue.
