The meeting was called to order at approximately 7:45 a.m.
Kappa Mann was also in attendance. Jeanne Yee and Dave Roback had sent notifications that they would be out of town.
April 2002 minutes were approved.
Kappa Mann gave an update on the online learning possibility with Oakland University. The initial pilot course on ethics would cost the Section $2,000 and subsequent sessions would cost considerably more. While we liked the concept and potential product, we concluded that our annual budget could not support this cost. Kappa agreed to email OU regarding our decision not to go forward with the project.
Treasurer's Report: Our balance as of March 31, 2002, was $5,077.94. The larger bills still outstanding include the November 2001 Integrated Technologies seminar $812 and the $400 fee for Tom Anderson's upcoming presentation in June. Kathy will process the $400 requests this week.
Ms. Kimbro contacted the Computer Law Section to inquire about their interest in partnering on a educational session at the annual meeting. They do not anticipate hosting a session at the annual meeting since they will likely host a separate session on Cyber Courts or e-Filing in the fall.
Michelle Kimbro and John Gorzalski are planning on attending the State Bar strategic planning session on June 13.
We discussed the 4/25/02 e-mail from Karen Williams regarding a potential error in the amount of dues charged to belong to our Section. John Gorzalski will follow up.
John Gorzalski confirmed that the Spring 2002 newsletter had been mailed to Section members.
Michelle Kimbro noted that Tom Anderson was all set for the presentation at the annual golf outing. She also mentioned that Gail Morgan would be willing to join us for a Council breakfast session in the fall to consider presenting a work/life benefit seminar to our Section. John Gorzalski offered the MESP as a potential topic for the fall as well.
We should continue to consider candidates for 2002-2003 Council Members.
Meeting adjourned at approximately 8:45 a.m.
