         I propose a name change for the Pacific Bulb Society to 'The
>North American Bulb Society'.

I like "Pacific Bulb SOciety" not because I live on the Pacific 
coast, but because of the other meaning of "pacific." The calmer and 
more peaceful a plant society is, the happier its members should be; 
and perhaps the name will be a gentle reminder to those few who 
actively enjoy conflict.

Also, we have a number of members outside North America, and a less 
geographically limiting name may make them feel more welcome.
