  Has anyone confirmed if the name change is fact?

If it is:
How is it that an issue as big as changing the name of the organization is a 
total surprise to the membership? This reminds me of the rules making 

Why do we need to change the name? It will definitely not boost attendance 
at contests or general membership numbers. Given the current state of 
membership etc., just the cost of changing all the logo's and letter head 
should have been enough to shoot this idea down. In fact, we have just lost 
what little name recognition we had, so in the short term this may add to 
the decline in membership. The only reason I can think of is to indicate 
where U.S. pilots are from at world contests; but who cares about world 
Honestly, I don't care what we are called, but I think there is someone 
running the show with their own agenda.

Where does one find the minutes of the BOD meeting?  I've checked the IAC
website, and they're not there yet.
