Approval of Minutes

Upon a motion by Dana Miller, seconded by Robert Taylor, the minutes of the last meeting held August 8, 2011 during the NCSL Legislative Summit, in San Antonio, TX, were approved.

New Business

Chair Braxton reported that the committee has a budget of $10,000 for publication and postage for the year. He indicated that the content of the next edition will include the President's Message and committee meeting minutes, as always. He called for ideas regarding new features. Tricia Vaughan suggested "State-at-a-Glance" profiles. Chair Braxton suggested a "Milestone" feature, such as those found in alumni magazines. "Newbie" and "Veteran" perspectives of the PDS were suggested also. We would like to have the first issue published before the end of 2011.

Adjournment

Upon a motion by Tricia Vaughan, seconded by Jennifer Welch, the meeting was adjourned.

Respectfully submitted,
Cathy Hooe, VA, Recorder
