Meeting Minutes

June 22, 2000

    Members Present:
    Mike Starrs
    Todd Briggs
    Kappa Mann
    Bob Post
    Dianne Roberts
    John Gorzalski

    1. Minutes:

    The minutes of the May meeting were approved.

    2. Chairperson's Report:

    Mr. Starrs reported that he had nothing new to report other than the fact that Ms. Monaco has confirmed a speaker for the Annual Meeting. Palma Baker, a local consultant, will discuss Putting Balance in Your Life on Friday, September 22. He also informed the Council that Ms. Monaco is in the process of developing a slate of officers for next year.

    3. Treasurer's Report:

    Mr. Briggs noted that he was unable to obtain the May financials, but as of April, the balance was approximately $9,600.00. He anticipates that the expenses for the May seminar will be about $2,100.00.

    4. Secretary's Report:

    Ms. Mann had nothing to report at this time.

    5. Committee Reports:

    Education—The May seminar and the agenda for the Annual Meeting were discussed briefly.

    Membership—Ms. Roberts said that she is still trying to obtain an updated list of members from the State Bar. The list in the Bar Journal suggests that the Section's membership is down about 40 people, but it does not identify attorneys and judges who are members. She expressed concern about our inability to get a correct listing because it means that we are not able to get information about the Section's activities to new members. A case in point is the number of returns received from the mailing about the May seminar. Mr. Gorzalski suggested that he would try to obtain a list for posting on the Section's website.

    Newsletter—Mr. Starrs reported that Ms. Schriner is working on the newsletter for July, and that if anyone has an article or topic to be included, to talk with her as soon as possible. It was suggested that this newsletter should include the proposed slate of officers.

    Website—Mr. Gorzalski noted that he has a new contact at the State Bar regarding the website. He also requested that any publicity on the Annual Meeting be provided to him for posting on the site.

    Publicity—No report.

    Ex officio—Mr. Post had nothing to report; he did, however, note that he thought the May seminar went well.

    6. Other Business:

    It was decided that the next meeting will be held by teleconferencing or by e-mail on Friday, July 21.

    7. Adjournment:

    The meeting was adjourned at approximately 6:40 p.m.
