Lean manufacturing works great! But what about a non-manufacturing setting?

Lean Office will show you how lean thinking can be applied to a variety of office processes. During
this two-day event, you will learn to identify the eight major office wastes and define non-value added
work. The principles and practices demonstrated during Lean Office can be applied immediately at
your facility whether you work in banking, government, healthcare, IT, or retail.

H. Recertification: (John Suedbeck) (Submitted via email 05/30/08)

There were two recertification packages submitted since the last SLC meeting.

I. Internet Liaison: (Carol Collins)
No report

J. Newsletter: (Brenda Wolf)
June meeting notice and newsletter will be sent out next week via email

K. Publicity: (Laura Horton) (Via email 06/04/08)

 No Activity this month
Recommend combining this function with the newsletter/meeting notices – can send out
meeting notices to local TV channels for inclusion on WebPages or public announcements –
Sent email to current Newsletter Chair (Brenda Wolfe) to get your thoughts on 6/5/2008 on
combining functions.

Old/New Business:

1. As a continued, future piece of business, it was suggested that next year we look into other ways to
promote the section than the M. O. Becket scholarship.

2. Gregory Roth suggested that we look into presenting low cost training for Section members. We will
need to find volunteers willing to teach. The suggested time duration of each class is 4 hours and the
ideal cost would be $50. The low cost would allow members to pay for the class on their own if their
company did not want to. Gregory Roth said he would be willing to teach statistics classes. Gregory
Roth will send out emails to solicit ideas for classes. We need to come up with minimum requirements
for the presenter and the material being presented. We need to emphasize the fact that presenters get
RUs for teaching a class. Gregory Roth will resend an email soliciting ideas for subjects to be
presented. Gage R&R was a good suggestion from Gregory for a subject that most members could use.
More information and ideas are requested for the June 10th SLC meeting.

3. The cost of the meal at the member meetings for the last year has been $19.65 (including speaker’s
gifts). The income for each of these meals is $15.00.

Several suggestions were put forth on the subject of meal pricing:
Laura reminded us that we were not in the business to make a profit from the meals and programs,
rather to provide a learning and networking opportunity for the members of our section.
Variable pricing based on the actual cost of the meal at the restaurant.
Leave the price at $15.00 and eat the difference.
Raise the cost to $20.00 and cover the cost but risk losing attendees.

Have a menu available with different meal cost levels and let the members choose what they want and
pay for it themselves.

Keith Daniel will look into these possibilities with the restaurants we have used and report back to the
SLC on the feasibility of the options for the June 10th meeting.

4. Keith Daniel made a motion that the July SLC meeting be moved to July 10, 2008 due to the July 4th
holiday. Laura Horton seconded the motion and it was approved by all.

5. The list of volunteer committee chairpersons for the 2008/2009 year is as follows:

Programs                      Walt Mercer
Arrangements                  Keith Daniel
Internet Liaison              Lawanda Drake
Membership/Database           Faiz Warsi
Newsletter/Publicity          Brenda Wolfe (Tentative addition Publicity)
Education                     Lawanda Drake
Certification                 Laura Horton
Recertification               John Suedbeck
Nominating                    Faiz Warsi
Audit Chair                   Gregory Roth

Gregory Roth has also volunteered to track our adherence the SMP process and goals that the SLC will
define at the July 10th SLC meeting.

6. It was determined that the following positions should have a check card for the Section 1126:
        Arrangements Chair
        Program Chair
        Section Chair
 Tom Thurman will recall check cards that are in the hands of SLC members.

7. The free 1st meal for new members will be put on the agenda for discussion at the July 10th SLC
meeting. This is a way to welcome new members and hopefully get them involved in the section

The July SLC meeting is scheduled for July 10, 2008 at 6:00PM at McAllister’s Deli in Greenville,

Meeting adjourned at 7:33 PM.
