  13. Tribal Roll Book: Dalton

    1. Iris doesn’t want a book full of labels. She wants to do a mass mailing. If they don’t respond, she wants to put them on inactive status.

      1. That doesn’t solve the problem

    2. Look into taking application page and put directly into TRB since we have those for every member

      1. We wouldn’t have to hunt anyone down

      2. Buster to look into legalities

      3. The inactive status is more of an ego boost
