The TBHS met today in Brentwood at the TBC Building. There are a few photos here. During the meeting the following major items were discussed:
1- The society will sponsor a conference titled ‘Finding your Baptist Roots’ on Friday, June 12 from 8:30- 4:30 at the Southern Baptist Historical Archives.
2- Membership fees / Journal Subscriptions will increase to $20 in 2010.
3- The slate of officers was elected without contestation and new positions were announced and will be voted on in 2010. The Society will add to its officer pool a webmaster and 3 regional vice presidents.
4- The Journal in 2010 will be a Festschrift (a celebratory writing) in honor of Albert Wardin Jr. The essayists and their titles were announced and Dr. Wardin received the surprise with his usual humility.
5- Members were asked to invite one or two persons to join the Society this year. This seems a reasonable request and all in attendence agreed.
