                   Thanked members for the excellent meeting turnout. Mike
                   acknowledged the past presidents in attendance, Roy Bull, Bruce
                   Surgeson, Jim Cole and Sandi Howlett. He also recognized visiting

                   Miller, outgoing Director of Region 1, Ken Gralow, incoming Director

                    Mike directed the member’s attention to the handout highlighting the
                    spring meeting to be held in Niagara Falls. The weekend will feature a
                    tech course on pumps by Roger Jenkins, a wine tour by bus to Peller
                    Estates with lunch and a bus for dinner theatre at Oh Canada Eh?
Vice President – Gerry Siemon:
                    Gerry noted that we are returning to Delawana Inn for our fall meeting
                    on the September 8 weekend this year as last year we had good
                    participation and our members had a good time. There will be a golf
                    tournament on Friday with a box lunch and a bus to the golf course.
                    Saturday will be the business meeting and barbecue dinner on the patio,
                    followed by a sunset cruise with jazz band and desserts. Gerry also
                    pointed out the other amenities such as water sports and mini golf.
                    Please make plans to attend.

                      Next year is an election year and we are canvassing for a new secretary.
                      If anyone is interested, please let the board know. We may also
                      approach members about filling the vacancy.

Secretary – Brian Larry:
                    Brian reviewed the events for the rest of the AGM noting that there will
                    be a pasta bar for lunch outside the Mountbatten room starting at
                    11:30AM for all attendees and their families.

                      Brian directed members to the table at the back where the name badge
                      sign-up sheet was set up for anyone who did not have a badge.

Education Committee – Scott Thornton:
                  Scott noted that this was the first education meeting in a couple of
                  years. It was initiated by a need for college level education as it has
                  been three years since the last course at Conestoga College. Scott
                  stated that Conestoga College had written a proposal for making rewind
                  a bona fide trade. We would like to reactivate provincial recognition
                  and a national red seal program. Scott noted the overlapping
                  requirements between the electrical trades. He pointed out that online
                  training could be an option in lieu of class time combined with practical
                  in shop training. Specific shop needs would have to be determined.
                  Scott discussed objectives for the education, the first being to form a
                  steering committee for approval of red seal, the key being industry
                  acceptance. For September implementation a membership survey
                  would have to be in members hands by the end of January. The second
                  objective would be to meet with government and education ministry

Regional Directors Report - Sandi Howlett:
                    Sandi thanked the attendees for coming and encouraged members to
                    thank the executive. Sandi stated that she is proud to be continuing her
                    second term as Regional Director. She noted that she attends Ontario
                    and Western Chapter meetings.

                     Sandi said the next Regional Directors meeting will be held February 11
                     with the topic of strategic plans for the future incorporating the results
                     of the member needs survey.
                      She sat in on the Education Committee meeting and pointed out that
                      sitting down with other members to come up with solutions to common
                      problems is what EASA is all about.

                      Encouraged members to attend the Las Vegas Convention. Sandi noted
                      that this year it is a Monday-Thursday venue due to Las Vegas

                      Sandi congratulated Jim and Sean on their years of service and
                      dedication to EASA.

                     Jim stated that this would be his last affiliate report as he is stepping

                       He reminded members to visit for current news, photos
                       of past functions and meeting notices.

                       Jim noted that the trade was sold out for the 5th straight year. He
                       encouraged members to browse the trade show and speak to the
                       exhibitors. He thanked the affiliates for their participation as they are
                       the ones that make the trade show work.

             Oakville, Dave Johnson and one new affiliate member, Elektrim Motor
