         Treasurer’s Items: Continued discussion of funding and memberships. Delbert
King suggests that attempts to increase the membership continue. Specifics relative to the
Conference and fees discussed. Suzanne Boyde noted that some current dues remained
unpaid. It was again suggested that notice of a reinstatement fee be referenced on the
Website as well as PayPal particulars to avoid confusion. More still needs to be done to
illustrate an advantage of membership in the Association. It was suggested that posting
online instead of printing multiple handouts at Conferences might be an area to save
funds. This will be discussed further and reviewed at the General Meeting to be held at
the Conference. It was again suggested that the Regional Directors encourage members
within their respective regions to support each other to promote advantages of working
with the local agencies.

                screened logo and/or embroidery items. Hats, bags, notebooks, and such

                 will be ready. An anniversary plaque is being researched. A website
                 “store” may be a future fundraiser for the association.

Thompson, to discuss the 25th Anniversary Conference arrangements up date.
        Troy Thompson covered previously discussed event orders and Conference
        (Included here are those items previously discussed by Liz Mikkelson at the 2
April 2010 Board Meeting for quick reference:
        Ms. Mikkleson previously presented options for meals at the Conference to
include new menu items. Breakfast/break alternatives were presented (Minutes up date:
The “a la carte” selection was approved the week following this Board Meeting as this
represents a savings to the Association over the “deluxe continental”). Meals alternatives
were presented. Selected were the following: A first day lunch cold sandwich with
“Bennigan Chips”. There may be a “Club Croissant” in lieu of sliced bread. There is to
be a Banquet Buffet for the Anniversary Celebration with a new “Chicken Supreme” and
“Specialty Steak”. The second day lunch will be a hot sandwich choice of “Hot Beef” or
“Hot Turkey”. Breaks with coffee, tea, soft drinks, juices, cookies, brownies, etc. will be
in keeping with prior years. A dessert option was provided whereby the Association may
for no service fee provide a custom dessert.)
