2012 (April) International Communication and Development Committee Meeting Minutes


American Society of Legislative Clerks and Secretaries (ASLCS)

Phoenix, Ariz.
April 21, 2012

Call to Order

The meeting was call to order at 10 a.m. by Dave Avant (AL), sitting for Chairperson Patrick Harris who was unable to be in Phoenix for the ASLCS Spring Meeting.


The following members of the committee were present: Dave Avant (AL), Suzi Lowell (AK), Ann Cornwell (AR), Liz Clark (AK), Diane Bell (FL), Joseph Carleton (ME), Susan Furlong (NV), Ramona Line (OR), Joe McCord (TN), Russell Humphrey (TN), Polly Emerson (TX), Lourdes Guena (TX), Patience Worrel (TX), Patsy Spaw (TX), Sandy Tenny (UT), and Steve Marshall (VT).


A discussion was held of the need to complete the International Directory which is the charge of the committee each year. It was suggested that Chairperson Harris contact the 2011 International Communications and Development Committee chairperson to get an electronic copy of last year’s directory and proceed with the contacts to update the new one for 2012. Hopefully this can be completed and the 2012 International Directory be printed and distributed prior the Chicago meeting.

Also, a discussion was held concerning a Canadian/American/International guests’ reception at the fall PDS. The consensus was that this reception in 2011 was a success and it was suggested that Chairperson Harris contact the Program Development chairperson and President Spieler to determine the feasibility of doing it again in Richmond this fall.


There being no further business the meeting was adjourned.
