a. Meetings of the Society shall normally be held on the first Monday of every month, with postponements agreed upon by the directors when such conflict with holidays or other interferences.

III. The Collection
Section 1. As the chief purpose of the society is to collect and preserve Waukesha Engine data, literature and memorabilia including photos and hardware, there shall · be an Acquisitions Committee consisting of the Museum Director and two other persons appointed by the President to keep a record of donated or loaned items by description and date. The record shall be maintained in such a way that items can quickly be located for reference and inspection when needed. Donated items shall become the permanent property of the Society. Loaned items shall be in the custody of the Society, but the Acquisitions Committee shall obtain from the lender a signed card stating whether the item shall become a donated item to the Society or whether it shall revert to the estate of the lender upon demise of said lender. A supply of uniformly worded cards for this purpose shall be prepared and kept on file to cover all items on loan to the Society.
Section 2. While the collection may be stored on the premises of Waukesha Engine Division through its offer of such storage space, all items in the collection are to remain exclusively the property of the Society, which alone shall determine their destiny.
Section 3. In the event that duplicate items are received for the collection beyond requirements for possible multiple displays, the Acquisitions Committee shall be empowered to use such duplicate surplus items for trading toward other desired items, or otherwise follow the wishes of donors.
