The ACNM Motion Discussion Listservs At this year’s Annual Meeting, nine motions were made for discussion at the business meetings. While members discussed and voted on the fourth motion, debate was limited and there was no time to review the remaining five motions. ACNM is providing an opportunity for members to discuss the motions that were not sufficiently covered (motions 4-9) via listserv. The listservs are open through July 14 at noon EDT. All ACNM members are welcome to join the discussion.
