    The meeting was called to order at approximately 7:35 a.m. The first item of discussion was the status of the Section's membership records at the State Bar. Ms. Yee reported that she had tried to unravel the problem of her own as well as several other inactive members, and she found out that the new applications for membership were "inactive" because they had not been approved and had been sent to Dianne Roberts in Grand Rapids for processing, according to the State Bar records. Ms. Mann said that she would contact Ms. Roberts and try to locate the applications and report back at the next meeting.

    Ms. Kimbro provided the Treasurer's report; she indicated that the balance of our account as of May 31 was $7,919.77.

Mr. Gorzalski will provide it to the Lansing ALA for distribution, and Ms. Batts will announce our plans for the meeting at the Detroit ALA meeting on Thursday, July 19.

    Mr. Gorzalski questioned the projected costs for our speaker, Mr. Wesemann. It is anticipated that the total will include Mr. Wesemann's travel expenses plus a $300 honorarium. Mr.Gorzalski will contact Mr. Wesemann to finalize the details and to determine his audio-visual needs.

    The next item of discussion was the issue of a slate of officers for next year. Mr. Gorzalski announced that David Roback of Harness, Dickey & Pierce has agreed to run for a position on the Council. Ms. Batts indicated that Euwanna Foster is also interested in joining the Council. Mr. Gorzalski will provide a complete slate by the end of week for inclusion in the next newsletter.

    Ms. Mann reported that she had no update on our proposal for online courses with EMU at this time.
