Ben Armstrong was voted in as the first ever president of HHA Haunted House Association. Ben is an awesome leader and I will help him in every way I can and follow his leadership and assist him fully!

More major announcements coming soon from HHA. VP will be elected soon along with other positions. Bylaws will be posted within days. The vendor discount program will be updated very soon as well.

The first ever HELP CENTER for haunt owners and operators and members will be added to the website. If you visit the site you'll see the haunt directory is almost done exclusive for members only.

Its all coming togeter.

HHA will have a booth at the Hauntshow in St. Louis and we will hold our first ever meeting on Friday night before the Columbia Haunt Tour.

Thank you all for the kind words! Let me tell you the interim board has been amazing! The work these guys are doing is first class.

Let me also say for those of you who are curious, this interim board appointed me as interim President, much as IAHA and many other orgainizations appoint officers. It is the task of this board to lay the groundwork for the orgainization and that is exactly what we are doing.

I desperately want to tell you all everything that is going on, but the biggest snag is our sign up page. It still has incorrect information and will be replaced with a shopping cart that will allow folks to join. I am worried that if we get you all eager to join, you will all go over there and get caught in a screwed up system! I keep hearing "any day now"

If the delay is more than another few days we will just rip down the page and put up a PDF of the membership form so that you can sign up by mail.

Anyway, thanks again and get ready for lots of cool annoucements to come!

I couldn't have said it any better myself!
