Registration for the meeting is $10, which includes lunch. There is also a meeting-only price of $5. Those wanting lunch must RSVP to Howard Luloff at 952-922-5036, email@example.com, by April 7.
At the business meeting during lunch, three members will be elected to the chapters board of directors to succeed outgoing directors Jerry Janzen, Cary Smith, and Bob Tholkes. Anyone interested in running for a two-year term may contact Nominating Committee Chair Kevin Hennessy at 651-492-2298.
Candidates may want to mark their calendars for Sunday, June 3, when the chapter board of directors will meet and elect officers for the 2012-2013 year. The board meeting will be at 6:00 p.m.. At this meeting, the incoming board members and holdover board members will elect, from among themselves, a president, vice president, secretary, and treasurer to a one-year term that will begin July 1. (A description of the duties for these offices is at http://halseyhall.org/bylaws#procedures.) Other than the elections at this board meeting, only the outgoing and holdover board members will be allowed to vote on chapter business because the board term of the incoming members will not begin until July 1.
Members are invited to submit a proposal to make a research presentation at the meeting. Proposals must be made in writing (e-mail is fine) to Research Committee Chair Bob Tholkes, 3966 NE Reservoir Boulevard, Columbia Heights, Minnesota 55421-4069, and should include a title and brief outline of what the presentation will consist of with emphasis on the research that will be included. Standard presentations are 20 minutes (with an additional eight minutes for questions) although the duration may be longer or shorter depending on the needs of the presenter and of the schedule. The Research Committee (which also consists of Dan Levitt, Cary Smith, Stew Thornley, and Rich Arpi) will finalize the schedule of research presentations by April 7, two weeks before the meeting, so proposals must be submitted by then.
One research presentation, the history of baseball in North Dakota by Terry Bohn, has been scheduled.
The evening viewing party of the 6 p.m. Minnesota at Tampa Bay game will be at Smalleys 87 Club in Butler Square, 100 North Sixth Street in Minneapolis.

This is an opportunity for members to meet the board and executive director in a relaxed setting.
SABR 42 will be at the Minneapolis Marriott City Center from Wednesday, June 27 to Sunday, July 1, 2012.
In addition to the events already scheduled and publicized for the SABR convention this summer, a trip to the baseball exhibit at the new Minnesota African American Museum will be held on Thursday night, June 28.
