The meeting was called to order at 7:10 AM by President-Elect Chris Russell, who announced the results of the 1988 election in SPR. Vince Wickwar, Dan Baker, and Mel Goldstein are the new Aeronomy, Magnetospheric Physics, and Solar and Heliospheric Physics section secretaries, respectively, and Bruce Tsurutani is the new President-Elect. Chris also reported that ballots were not received at four institutions: University of Californa— Los Angeles, Jet Propulsion Laboratory, Los Alamos National Laboratory, and Task. Therefore 329 members did not receive ballots (or first and second AGU subscription notices). AGU claims, as far as they can tell, that this is a U.S. mail or institutional mail handling problem.
