1.0 Call To Order. By President, Tony Falcone @ 12:01 p.m.
2.0 Self Introduction
3.0 Chapter Business
        3.1   Old Business
               3.1.1 President, Tony Falcone reported on the December 17th Chapter
                      Installation Luncheon. Great event with plenty of food, gifts & fun.
               3.1.2 President Tony Falcone mentioned that this year we will be
                      working closer with the Los Angeles Basin Chapter.

        3.2   New Business
             3.2.1   President Tony Falcone mentioned that the Chapter Board met last
                     week and many ideas were brought forth and the members.
             3.2.2   Tony Falcone mentioned that he has had meetings with Roy Itani,
                     LA Basin President and they are thinking about writing a letter to
                     SEAOSC Board and invite them to meet and discuss the issues that
                     were brought up in the last issue of SEAOSC newsletter by
                     Williston Warren.
             3.2.3   Secretary Amir Hamidzadeh suggested the idea of having our
                     monthly meeting hosted by few of the member jurisdictions that
                     are interested at their location. There were several discussions; It
                     was decided that we try the idea by having one meeting hosted by
                     Steve Sutton at the “beautiful” City of Port Hueneme.
             3.2.4   President Falcone discussed the importance of attendance of the
                     meetings and encouraged all members to attend the meetings
                     regularly. He asked the Building Officials to allow their staff some
                     additional time so they can also attend the chapter meetings.

      3.3   Announcements:
             3.3.1 Ali Hamidzadeh mentioned that there is a job opening in the City
                   of Tustin which he has e-mailed to all members. He asked that
                   during these difficult times, it would be great if there the members
                   would share the knowledge of any job opportunities with the
                   chapter and their colleagues.
             3.3.2 Ali also suggested to create an Inspection Committee/Group
                   created so that the inspectors from the local jurisdictions could
                   network, share information, and create a better uniform methods of
                   conducting our inspections. The idea was well received and Mike
                   Kalske of Agoura Hills and Jason Reithoffer of Calabasas showed
                   special interest.
