=== Introduce new members ===

=== Improve the Wiki === ::What if we start making weekly offers to contribute our skills to other state projects? We each have skill sets that we have developed, such as finding courthouse pics, library addresses, adding infoboxes, historical population tables, breadcrumb trails, etc. Why not collaborate by offering to help out in each other's projects? I'll make the first offer.
