Approval of Minutes

Upon a motion by Ann Cornwell (AR), seconded by Nathan Hatfield (VA) the minutes of the last meeting held April 10, 2010, during the Spring Meeting in New York, NY were approved. 

Old Business

Vice Chair Avant reminded the members this was the last meeting of the committee and the charge was to select a site for the 2012 Annual Professional Development Seminar. He stated a survey was sent to the Principals of ASLCS and not one state responded with interest to host a meeting in 2012. The committee discussed what constituted a No Host meeting and the responsibilities of the members of ASLCS for a No Host meeting. Denise Weeks stated that several members had expressed an interest in having a No Host meeting in Portland, ME, since the last meeting there in 1983 had been such a memorable and successful meeting. Ms. Weeks also stated that Millie MacFarland was aware of the Society’s interest in a possible No Host meeting in her home state. Ann Cornwell moved, seconded by Denise Weeks, that the Site Selection report to the Executive Committee recommends a No Host meeting for 2012 with Portland, ME as the selected site. Vice Chair Avant asked for volunteers to serve on a No Host committee if the Executive Committee approved the report. Denise Weeks, Ann Cornwell and Jay Braxton volunteered. 

Adjournment

Upon a motion by Denise Weeks (NC), seconded by Ann Cornwell (AR), the meeting was adjourned. 

Respectfully submitted,
Denise Weeks (NC), Acting Recorder
