The Annual Holiday Potluck of The Arizona Mushroom Club opened with the announcement of the retirement of founder and long time president Dr. Chester Leathers. After a fun and informative presentation on edible and medicinal plants by Jean Groen, Dr Leathers was commended for his long commitment to the AMC and thanked by the membership.
The membership voted to incorporate as a nonprofit, educational organization. Membership elected a board of directors, who in turn voted on the Bylaws necessary for incorporation. To attain status as a tax deductible charity, the club will be renamed as the Arizona Mushroom Society, Inc.
A considerable amount of enthusiasm was shown for developing more mushroom-related activities, and we are looking forward to the changes this will bring.

Minutes of the meeting will be posted on this website as soon as they are approved by the board.
