The AOJ annual business meeting of September 23, 2014, was held in two sessions. The morning dealt with the referendum results and a freewheeling, reluctantly off-the-record discussion of the direction the remaining foundation and its prospective partner organizations should take. The afternoon session featured a presentation on the Minority Writers Seminar.
