Minutes of the Twelfth Annual Convention of the Association.
The convention was called to order by President Gordon at 11 a.m. The minutes of the last convention were read and approved, followed by the president's address, after which many papers upon subjects of much interest to the profession were read.
The report of the executive committee was approved, and new members were elected subject to their passing an examination before the examining board, which will hereafter be appointed by the president.
The afternoon session was taken up principally by the discussion of new methods of construction, including several interesting lectures upon wiring, plumbing, foundations, etc.
Mr. George R. Mann of the St. Louis chapter of the American Institute of Architects was invited to address the convention. He chose as his subject "Heating and Ventilation." The address was technical, accompanied by many tests and experiments. He received a vote of thanks.
A committee was appointed to formulate [a?] design to be engraved and used as a certificate of membership as well as for a new seal for the association.
The convention adjourned and had its annual dinner at the Oriental hotel.

I desire to become a member of your association. I submit this, my application to your [H?}onorable body
Respectfully yours H. A. [Over?]beck
San Angelo. Dec/29/90.
Yours of the 18th/ inst to hand. There certainly must be a mistake somewhere, as I think, if I remember correctly, all charter members paid, not only their dues but initiation dues as well,- as we needed money at that time.-
Write to Mr. Lar[?] in regard to same. as I think his books will show I paid
my charter dues.
The balance for years 89/90 is correct.-
Please investigate the above and let me know.
It will be impossible for me to get to Fort Worth this year.
I would like very much to meet with you all this year, and intended to do so, as I had missed the last few meetings.
I think the resignation of Mr. Dodson was wrong. also do I think, it was a matter to be investigated by our Executive Comm.
I mean the Ass. should not have accepted the resignation, without investigation, - as we could ill afford to loose[lose] so good a member. -
If I can manage to come, I shall certainly do so as another matter of about the same kind may come before the meeting.
