Notes: Matt Wandstrat, Delta Chair, spoke to the board Keep lines of communication open between Delta board and YP board Voting members of the Delta Section board hold offices with natural ascensions. The board is composed of the Chair, Past Chair, Secretary, Treasurer, Programs, Membership and then non-voting members which head up the various sections. Would like to see YP members on the Delta Board. Why is there a need for two boards? YP is an initiative by SPE International to keep younger members involved and that they continue to be active, contributing members of the organization. It is acceptable and encouraged to invite non-SPE membership to SPE events to attract new members. Everyone is invited to the SPE Delta Section board meetings.
