Our disaster response & recovery workshop is scheduled for March 26. Mr. Gorzalski will copy the materials for the workshop.
Ms. Kimbro is going to attend the ALA board meeting on March 14 to discuss the golf outing.
Ms. Mann presented the demo from Oakland University. This is something that we would have an interest in pursuing further. Oakland University currently has a legal assistant and an MBA program. Ms. Mann and Mr. Gorzalski are scheduled to meet with Oakland University this Thursday to discuss the potential fit, options and cost of partnering on a training program.
Items to consider for the next meeting include deciding on whether we will sponsor any additional events between the golf outing and the annual meeting and considering additional Council Members for 2002-2003 year. Potential candidates were discussed and will be contacted by Mr. Gorzalski.
