The chair informed the committee of several changes to the roster.  Senate and House information will be separated by chamber in the principals’ section.  In the associates’ section a “cont.” will be in the header by the state name that carries over to other pages.

Karen Wadsworth, president of ASLCS, thanked the committee.  Carol also thanked the committee.

Joan Branson suggested bolding the state name and trying to increase the font size.

The 70th anniversary committee will provide a logo for the 2013 roster cover.  Pricing will be checked on to switch to a spiral binding to make the roster more user friendly.

Publication will be on hold for a couple of weeks until after the elections in November to incorporate new chamber totals of members.

Adobe InDesign is the program used to publish the roster.



Joan Branson, Missouri, moved to adjourn.  Sandy Tenney, Utah, seconded the motion.
