notice (evite). Preparing welcome letter to sent to new & old members. Judy asked
David for a website update. David is on the OSHA Construction Advisory Committee
and will be presenting about ASSE and the section at next month’s meeting. Chuck
Easterly will present on Safety Accountability at March meeting.
Mt. St. Helens: Clark Hislop no report Bill Kness will be attending this month’s
meetings and will deliver Membership certificates for their members.
Construction Safety Summit: Jill—casual meeting held to see what can be
done to preserve relationship with CSS. Representatives from both groups
felt it was mutually beneficial to remain as partners in construction safety
education. Another meeting has been scheduled for today with the chapter CPA to
explain to both groups the tax laws with a goal of finding an acceptable way to manage
the Wayne Thomas fund.
Student Liaison: Lonnie Turner—asked to investigate methods of providing
meals to student members who attend the chapter meetings. No report. Paula
reported that 5 student meals were paid for by the chapter at the December meeting.
Jamal will contact Lonnie to discuss finding a sponsor for February. If sponsor cannot
be found student meals will be $10 to be paid by the student. This prompted some
discussion about the real cost of meals and a final cost to membership was set.
Breakfast and Lunch pricing will be student $10, Member/retired member $15, guest
$20; Dinner pricing Student $15, Member/retired member $20, guest $25. Jill will be
giving a list of the ASSE registered students. Only these students will qualify for the
reduced or free meals. Non ASSE student members will be charged the guest price
since it does not cost the student anything to join the Society.
Membership: Jamal AbuSneineh—suggestion: have membership table at each
meeting with info about membership, address change try again in January.
Membership numbers Chapter membership—427 total, Student Section—Mt Hood
23, OSU 2, Joined since last month—9, memberships expiring this month—18. Jamal
will send email to those members.
PDC: Luke—Youth OSHA 10 February 23 & 24 at Tigard High School. Jamal & Luke
will be presenting. They do not need a sponsor this year as they will be supplying
material on a CD instead of paper. This will be a cost of $20 instead of $200. They are
looking at April for a PDC that will be an OSHA 10 general industry. They will hold this
at the Multnomah County offices. They will be determining the costs but it will be
cheaper than what WU offers with a special discount for chapter members. Another
idea is to host a webinar. Chapter buys the program and Charges a fee. Example: $40
covers webinar and snack.

                                                                              Page 2 of 6

     vendor since this one has backed off from the project.

                                                                            Page 3 of 6

                                   Hayden’s Lakeside Grill
                                         7:00 AM

     decision will be arrived at the way. Bill stated he was still wanted to be a sponsor,
     it has been determined there is no conflict of interest, and is willing to sponsor
     what the officers decide is the greater need.

     recognition, toy & food drive January meeting will be lunch. January and
     February have been switched to accommodate the speakers’ schedule.

       Meeting PPt—Judy—items for PPt due Monday 5 pm
       LinkedIn—Bill sent email question: What do we want to do about
     people who send out solicitation messages using our site? Example: see
     attachment to agenda There was some discussion about the vision for both
     LinkedIn and the website blog. General consensus was to allow only membership
     participation on website blog and no advertisements. LinkedIn is a business
     orientated site and this is where the members can conduct business with ads and
     help requests. Bill will be main manager for both of these sites. There were some
     questions as to whether we needed both. It was decided that new things take
     time to catch on, youth are really tuned into the electronic media and we need to
     participate in such to attract and keep younger members, we need to start
     somewhere and as time goes on these two sites will become more popular and in
     the mean time we learn how to manage and promote them as well as fine tune
     there style.
       CSP Study Group—Bill There are now webinars online that can be used
     by a study group at no cost. Bill asked the group what it was we were wanting
     from this effort. General idea is to coordinate or facilitate the organization of
     group. That could be a set number of people with a set meeting place and time or
     assembling information of where to attend workshops or resource of online and
     other materials for individual study.
       ROC meeting Report—Jill & Luke Jill send out email report Next meeting
     is in San Diego March 15 & 16. Both Jill & Luke are planning to attend.

                                                                                Page 4 of 6

     Jill has received and email asking the chapter for support of this new (revived)
     committee. Sathy Rajendran is running the Safety Program at CWU and is looking
     for representation from the WA chapters and us. This is a position that would be
     passed to the incoming president. Jill will send out the email and attachment she
     received from Sathy. There will be discussion followed by email vote.
      Portland State eLearning program Art of Portland State would like to talk
     about an eLearning program that they put together, would like to talk to us and
     ask for a little help. Art Cohn, PSU, is looking for support from chapter for their e-
     learning program. They are developing software learning/training materials in a
     wide range of topics then will make them available online. Their goal is to have
     2,000 courses available over a broad range of corporate topics. They are looking
     for core subjects and experts dealing with safety. They are seeking management
     topics and leadership subjects. Each module is about 10 minutes each. A topic
     may have many 10 minute sessions or modules so they can be done when an
     employee has a few minutes of time instead of needing an hour or more. They
     currently have 680 courses developed and are looking for safety topics and
     experts. ASSE is the perfect place for them to find topic suggestions and the
     experts to develop them. He would like some time at a meeting to explain their
     program and what they are looking for from members.

                                                                                  Page 5 of 6
