Several items of association business were
discussed during the meeting of the ICFA
Executive Council during a meeting at the
2004 Reunion in San Diego, October 9. They
• All the present officers agreed to serve
for another two years.
• A suggestion was made about moving the
next reunion in Cody, WY, from 2006 to 2007
to coincide with the opening of the new museum
dedicated to Buffalo Bill at the Buffalo
Bill Historical Center. The change was not
approved. The Council did approve a motion
that the 2006 Reunion in Cody be held during
the Fourth of July period because of the many
activities during that time of year. The 2008
Reunion will be held in Ohio; North Platte,
NE, or Toronto ON, Canada were mentioned
as possible venues for the 2010 Reunion.
• Terry Cody announced the association’s
web site is up and running at www.cody-family.org.
He said that he and Richard Grosenbaugh,
Review editor, would manage the site.
Terry also announced that the Review would
be continued in its present six-page format
due to rising printing and mailing costs. To
help cover those costs, the council voted to
increase member dues to $30 a year.
• Efforts will be made to increase the number
of families who pay their dues annually.
A system will be set up on the web site that
allows payment of dues. Dues for Canadian
family members will be published in the
Review according to the exchange rates at the
time of publication. Dues payments may now
be made in U.S. or Canadian dollars. Starting
in 2005 ICFA membership cards will be sent
to those who pay dues.
• A suggestion was made that the Review
only be sent to dues-paying members. Terry
Cody said, however, that the primary method
for keeping family records updated is through
the Review and that limiting distribution
would mean losing contact with some family
• It was reported that work is continuing on
updating and printing of the Cody genealogy.
Hard copies were originally sold for $ l00 +
$8 shipping and handling but the price may
have to be increased depending on print costs.
The family sells the genealogy as a service
and does not profit from its sale.
• Suzanna Cody has been working on
charitable non-profit status for the ICFA.
One option is to explore a formal, mutually
beneficial realignment with the Buffalo Bill
Historical Center. The officers agreed to meet
in Cody WY in late August to meet with the
BBHC to conclude any agreement. In the
meantime, president Kit Cody and vice presi-
dent Suzanna will take the lead in discussion
with BBHC to prepare the way for the August
