Mark Buelsing at markb@letitshine.biz asked for photos of cars, auto shows, and auto events to be submitted to gocarshow.com.

Old Business:

A list of businesses that print, such as Meijer, Dodd, ProCam, and Pop Revolution, will be added to the club’s website.  Please send any information on print vendors to Karen Kindness.  Future presentations on how to print will occur.

New Business:

The new web domain name is www.cincyphoto.club.  The .club extension better defines the organization, since it is a photo club and not a business.  This name costs about $20/ year, very similar to the .com name.

Shannon O’Connor enlightened the members about Composition.
