Business Meeting

CBA President Barbara E. Reid called the annual business meeting to order at 3:19 P.M., beginning with a time of silent prayer when former CBA members who had died were remembered. In advance of the meeting, CBA members were notified by e-mail that the business meeting reports were available for download from the CBA website. Throughout the business meeting, a Power Point presentation was displayed containing salient points from each of the reports.

The Executive Director’s report was presented by Joseph C. Atkinson. He started by revealing that 217 from 10 different countries had registered for the 2015 Annual General Meeting. On behalf of those present, he offered thanks to the hosts of the meeting, Xavier University of Louisiana, in particular CBA member, Sr. Mary Ann Stachow, S.B.S. Atkinson then stated that a focus of the past year has been the implementation of the structures and practices outlined in the Constitution and By-Laws approved at last year’s meeting. One consequence of the new structures is the many slots that need to be filled by the Committee on Nominations. Atkinson also shared his appreciation of the CBA Office staff, Violet Halton and Lisa Tarker. He presented some highlights from the Office’s work in the past year: the development of a policy regulating Institutional Archiving and Open-Access; the near completion of the membership/accounting database conversion; and the greater communication the office has established with the membership through the website, Facebook, Twitter, and monthly e-newsletters. He also recognized with appreciation the free computers and technical support from The Catholic University of America. Gratitude was also expressed to the CBA webmaster, Felix Just, the Executive Board (in particular President, Barbara Reid, and Past President, Gary Anderson), and to the Chairs of two Committees that commendably executed a large workload — Dick Clifford, Committee on Nominations Chair, and John Clabeaux, Committee on the Program for the Annual General Meeting Chair. Atkinson also commented about the genuine family flavor to CBA which has the potential to serve God’s Word in a unique way, but like all families, CBA is meant to grow. To that end, he added, the Executive Board has been wrestling with the challenges of the future. The Board is exploring a Young Scholars initiative to engage new scholars beginning their careers. It is also investigating the reinstitution of the grant program, establishing planning models that enable better promotion of CBA activities, securing venues for the Annual General Meeting, and developing the website to better serve the membership as a tool for academic research and communication. With respect of the last two items, he requested that members interested in hosting an Annual General Meeting to contact the CBA Office and encouraged all members to log into the CBA website to check that the correct e-mail address is in their account profile. The floor was opened for questions and/or comments.

There being none, Ronald D. Witherup, P.S.S. as Chair the Committee on Finance and Investments, gave a summary report on the finances of the association. Prior to the meeting, members were sent an e-mail with a link to the CBA Financial Report for the fiscal year that ended June 30, 2015. Witherup pointed out that for the fiscal year, CBA’s total receipts were $940,418.97, while the association’s expenses totaled $480,849.53. The market value of CBA’s investments is $9,942,439 and the total assets are $10,554,841. After Witherup’s summation, a question was raised about the gap between income and expenditures for Old Testament Abstracts (receipts: $25,367.75/expenses: $90,383.81). Witherup responded that the difference is compensated by the large royalties received from the ATLA contract which is recorded in the royalties section.

Leslie J. Hoppe, O.F.M. presented his report as the General Editor of the CBQ, expressing thanks to the Editorial Board for its work. He recounted the statistics presented in the report, pointing to the need for more submissions. He raised a concerned that the 2015 October issue presently is thin with only six articles and issued an invitation to members to seriously consider CBQ as a venue for article publication and to consenting to be a reviewer. Hoppe moved that the following persons recommended by the CBQ Editorial Board be elected to serve on that Board: David E. Aune; Jeremy Corley, Anathea E. Portier-Young, and Seung Ai Yang (nominated for second term, 2016-2019); Normand R. Bonneau, Andrew R. Davis, Ahida E. Pilarski, and Dennis Hamm, S.J. (newly nominated for 2016-2019); Christopher Frechette (nominated as a replacement to complete the term of Julia M. O’ Brien, 2015-2017). With no dissent or abstention being voiced, the motion passed unanimously.

In the absence of Christopher T. Begg, Joseph E. Jensen gave the report of the General Editor of OTA. He noted that two issues were produced in February and June, representing 1,521 article abstracts and 230 book abstracts. At the time of the report, the October issue was with the typesetter and articles were being collected for the February 2016 issue.

In the absence of Robert A. Kugler, Ronald D. Witherup, P.S.S. presented his report of the General Editor of CBQMS. In 2015, CBQMS Volume 53, The Fallen Angels Traditions: Second Temple Developments and Reception History, edited by Angela Kim Harkins, Kelley Coblentz Bautch, and John Endres, S.J. was published. CBQMS 54, Good Queen Mothers, Bad Queen Mothers: The Theological Presentation of the Queen in 1 and 2 Kings, by Ginny Brewer-Boydston is in press. A further volume, CBQMS 55, Exploring Biblical Kinship: Festschrift in Honor of John J. Pilch, edited by Joan Campbell and Patrick J. Hartin, is in the final editing stages and will be in press in late summer 2015. Retiring from the Board in 2015 are five members: Ralph Klein, Leo Laberge, Bruce Malina, Pheme Perkins, and Barbara Green (whose term would have concluded in 2017). Witherup moved that moved that the following persons recommended by the CBQMS Editorial Board be elected to serve on that Board: Richard Bautch to conclude Barbara Green’s term (2015-17) and Richard Ascough, Peter Dubovsky, Karina Hogan, Catherine Murphy for the complete term (2016-19). With no dissent or abstention being voiced, the motion carried unanimously.
