      Old Business

       a. The last chapter minutes reported that the new Tidewater
          Chapter shirts were distributed to all Chapter officers and
          the cost of the shirts was originally paid by Maersk Line
          Limited (MLL). Since that time, it was decided that it was
          in the best interest of all if the Chapter paid for its own
          shirts and thus Maersk was reimbursed for the shirts.
       b. A   Certified   Property  Professional   Specialist   (CPPS)
          Certificate was presented by our Chapter President to one
          of our Chapter members, Mr. Gilbert Glass of Raytheon.
          Congratulations Gilbert!
       c. A reminder of the submission of the NPMA awards.         For
          Outstanding Member, we can submit up to two nominees since
          we are a medium sized chapter. Due to NPMA HQ by 15 June
          2010. The due dates for the Chapter of the Year and Jack E
          Griffiths Person of the Year awards have passed.         The
          Lifetime Achievement Award nominations are due to the
          National Director NLT 1 June 2011.    THE CHAPTER NOMINATED

   Vice President:

        Summer is here, and the NES is almost upon us!     One of
         the first activities of the NES will be our Eastern
         Region Board meeting, followed by the National Board of
         Delegates meeting.    Both will take place on Sunday, 24
         July 2011.   Paul Leon and Susan Avery from our Chapter
         will attend the meetings.
        One of the main issues for discussion at these meetings
         will be the proposed restructuring of our Conference
         Series events. The NPMA Conference and Seminar Planning
         Committee (CSPC), chaired by Wayne Norman and Steve
         Holland, have developed a new model for these events that
         will be up for a vote at the Regional and National
         meetings. This new structure is designed to maximize the
         attendance, financial success and educational impact of
         our signature events.
        NPMA 5K Fun Run/Walk will take place on 27 July during
         NES.    The time is at 6AM.        There will be a $20
         registration fee, and everyone gets a cool shirt.
         Proceeds will go to the NPMA foundation.

j.   No other issues were discussed.   Meeting was adjourned at
     approximately 700PM. Our next meeting is scheduled to take
     place on Saturday, 10 September 2011 (1:00PM), at the
     Rockefeller’s Restaurant inside the Marriott City Center
     Hotel in Newport News, Virginia.
