EDUCATION COMMITTEE: Discussion that started during lunch continued thru the start of the meeting. A long discussion was held on possible classes and instructors to fill the several time slots that still remain open.

MINUTES: Motion was made and seconded to approve previous minutes. Passed.

EXECUTIVE DIRECTOR REPORT: Now that all the membership dues invoices are paid we now show a membership of 126.

The contract amendment with Chemeketa College for this year's school has been signed. This is an annual process that covers just the dates of the school, not the base contract.

The new coffee cups for the school have already arrived. With our special discount and early order they cost us about $2.50 each.

I will contact our school caterer and Busters catering in January to re-confirm our schedules.

FINANCIAL REPORT: Kerry gave a report on the checking account and expenses, along with the investment account.

VENDORS COMMITTEE: Discussion was held concerning replacing our old VHS player/tv with a larger tv/monitor that can show computer driven software for advertising use at different venues. Everyone was in favor of this idea.

OLD BUSINESS: Kerry reported that George talked to Mark about a graphic for this year's sweatshirt. He should be sending some proofs for approval in a few days.

GOOD OF THE ORDER: Our continuing best wishes and a speedy recovery go out to George Eisert and Quirt Lancaster.
