<div class="gmail_quote">Hello Members of all Committees,<br><br>There are currently 5 Barter Supporters. These deals have been ad hoc. Recently there have been a couple of new requests. Now is the time to make this process more transparent.  This needs to be done before new barter is accepted. The Membership Committee proposed the following. Your feedback would be greatly appreciated. We will summerize it by March 9 and submit it to the board in the next board meeting on March 12.</div>
